EpiLASIK is an innovative new procedure designed to restore natural vision with the help of an epikeratome. The Epi-Lasik surgeon uses an epikeratome, a separator that creates an epithelial sheet, to make a thin flap in the epithelium. The Wavefront based excimer laser beam is then applied under the epithelial flap to successfully correct refractive errors and restore clear vision.
