I'm thinking about getting Epi-Lasik surgery done. It differs from normal LASIK surgery in that there is no corneal flap cut. They use a laser (or blade) to remove the epithelium and then do the correction. You have to wear protective contact lenses a few days while the epithelium grows back. The recovery period is longer than with normal LASIK, but the benefits are that there is less of a risk of any complications with the corneal flap during the operation or post-op (e.g. long term instability of the corneal flap) and it can be done entirely with a laser (no mechanical blade contact).
Have any of your had Epi-Lasik or LASIK surgery or know anyone that has? Any advice or feedback you can offer would be very appreciated.
