All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



Is lasek safer than lasik?

When i performed lasik with blade, i used to say that lasek is safer. With the advent of blade-free lasik, i feel that both procedures have the same safety profile. I typically recommend lasik if somebody is a good candidate for it.
