LASER Excimer


LASEK is a technique where an epithelial flap is performed with a diluted alcoholic solution prior to the use of the Excimer Laser.

  • Lasek technique is similar to PRK.
  • The use of a contact lens is necessary after surgery to obtain the adhesion of the epithelium flap.
  • LASEK induces post-operative pains similar to PRK.
  • Visual recovery is slightly faster than PRK.
