LASEK Laser Eye Surgery -- Dr. Weingarten Eye Surgeon in Detroit / Rochester, MI

LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis) is a variation of PRK and LASIK. It is used mostly for people with corneas that are too thin for LASIK. In LASEK, the epithelium, or outer layer of the cornea, is removed using a diluted alcohol solution. An excimer laser is then used to sculpt the corneal tissue underneath. Following the procedure, the epithelium is placed back over the eye. A bandaged contact lens is then placed into the eye and is worn for about five days or until the epithelium has healed. Detroit/Rochester LASEK patients who undergo this procedure generally experience increased eye irritation and longer recovery time compared to LASIK. However, the long-term results are similar.
