Epi-LASIK is a form of laser eye surgery that uses techniques of both LASIK and LASEK surgeries. It is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. In this surgery, the doctor uses an epithelial separator (plastic blade) to separate the upper layer of the cornea from the rest, uses an excimer laser to reshape the underlying cornea in order to reflect light properly, and then replaces the upper layer. The patient is required to wear a special contact lens afterwards to ensure proper healing.
