LASEK can treat a broad range of prescriptions, including long-sightedness, short-sightedness and astigmatism.
LASEK is ideal for patients who are motivated to be spectacle or contact lens free.
With LASEK, there is slightly more discomfort and longer healing time compared to LASIK.
Before you can have LASEK, you must first have your eye health thoroughly evaluated. This is to identify certain circumstances where this type of laser surgery would not be suitable. You must also have a stable prescription.
LASEK is better suited to patients who might suffer impacts to the eye, such as those involved with contact sports.
