What is Epi-LASIK?

Epi-LASIK is also known as TransPRK, PRK,Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA), or LASEK.

Epi-LASIK, LASEK, ASA, PRK Eye Surgery

The Epi-LASIK Process

During an Epi-LASIK procedure, the surgeon first removes the epithelium (the extremely thin outer layer) of the cornea. Next, an alcohol solution, a buffing device or a blunt surgical instrument is used.

Subsequently, the underlying corneal stroma is then reshaped with an excimer laser. The is the same as what is done during LASIK.

Next, a bandage contact lens inserted to protect and secure the epithelium in place as it heals. A new epithelial layer usually grows back within five days.

Is Epi-LASIK a better treatment option?

The optimal treatment option for each patient depends on their eye condition. As compared to LASIK, Epi-LASIK causes more discomfort and has slower visual recovery. However, it is a good treatment option for select patients. At Lee Hung Ming Eye Centre, we usually use this Epi-LASIK to treat patients with thin corneas or boxing/mixed martial arts enthusiasts.

Not sure which is better for you? Not to worry. During the LASIK Assessment, we will assess whether Epi-LASIK or LASIK is more suitable for your eyes.
