All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



What is the difference between LASIK with the blade and Blade-free LASIK ?

There isn’t much of a difference really…the ultimate result is the same. In my hands, lasek allows a more comfortable and faster healing postoperative period. Many studies have shown that all 3 procedures are essentially the same and fall under the category of “surface ablation”.
