Q Risk or corneal scarring is more in epi lasik… (1-2%) as compared to less than 1% in lasik (flap surgery).Just needed an understanding of this.?

Ans.  In fact not at all, as what is treated in LASIK is by making a ‘cut’ or ‘flap’ in the thickness of the cornea. In EpiLASIK there is no ‘cut’ on the eye. Corneal Haze is not seen in our centre, but also only possible in EpiLASIK if one has not used the eye drops as prescribed (as these need to be used for 12 weeks).
