Epi-LASIK has emerged the preferred, safer choice over conventional LASIK because unlike LASIK, it is a surface-based procedure that involves NO cutting and creation of a cornea flap.

Performed on the surface of the cornea, whereby only the front surface of the cornea is sculpted with laser, Epi-LASIK protects the structural integrity of the cornea and it is this main reason that results in the many advantages Epi-LASIK has over LASIK.
