Many people around the world who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism use Epi-LASIK eye surgery as a long lasting solution to restore diminishing vision. It helps people to have an even more beautiful, shiny face by getting rid of all kinds of glasses and it’s side effects on face. It is very similar to LASIK and LASEK , but here the flap created on the cornea is thinner than a LASIK flap. This can be an advantage for patients with thinner than normal corneas. unlike LASEK, an alcohol solution typically is not applied to the eye in epi-LASIK to loosen epithelial cells from the underlying corneal stroma. Some doctors find this reason good enough to prefer epi-LASIK over LASEK ,since alcohol is toxic to epithelial cells and can increase healing time after the procedure.
