Lasek Eye Surgery at Laser Vision Guildford

Many of our Guildford patients find that wearing contacts or glasses can interfere with their confidence and busy lifestyles.

Is there a difference between LASEK and LASIK laser eye surgery?

The two most popular laser eye surgery procedures for vision correction are LASIK and LASEK. Though they both aim to improve vision and reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses, there are some notable differences between the two.


LASEK laser surgery

During LASEK surgery at Laser Vision, the thin epithelial layer of the cornea is removed using a specialist tool or an alcohol solution.

Your surgeon then uses an excimer laser to remodel the underlying cornea. After the eye is reshaped, a soft contact lens is inserted to protect it while it recovers. Generally speaking, recovery from LASEK is longer than that from LASIK.

LASIK eye surgery

During LASIK eye treatments, a femtosecond laser or microkeratome is used to create a tiny corneal flap. The consultant ophthalmologist will then use an excimer laser to reshape the thin cornea underneath the flap.

Once the reshaping process is complete, the flap is repositioned onto the cornea. This method is well known for its quick recovery time and little discomfort.


Contact our clinical team to find out which treatment is best for you

The specifics of each patient’s eye and the advice of your physician will play a role in determining whether to proceed with LASIK or LASEK.

LASIK may be a better choice for patients with larger corneas and stable prescriptions, whereas LASEK may be a better choice for patients with thinner corneas or other medical conditions.

Our experts can assist you in selecting the best type of refractive surgery for your circumstances after a brief assessment.
