All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  

What is the percentage of LASIK vs LASEK procedured performed ?

This can vary by surgeon. I do about 75% lasik and 25% lasek (same as prk or epilasik). Most lasek patients are those who were not lasik candidates. For patients who do not qualify for either, i either recommend no treatment or another modality such as an implantable contact lens or clear lens extraction
