Q Are Epi-LASIK surgeries also commonly performed at the hospital vis a vis a ‘normal’ lasik operation. Apart from the longer rest period, an epi-LASIK generally safer right?

Ans.  Yes, EpiLASIK makes an already safe treatment like LASIK much safer. However, due to the recovery period being more uncomfortable and longer by 4 days, eye drops also need to be used diligently for 3 months, besides this the visual recovery remains similar.
