What is a LASEK eye treatment?
It is a classic laser treatment method in which refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism are removed with an excimer laser. Basically, it is a form of treatment between the LASIK method and PRK. It is used in cases where the corneal structure (LASIK) is not suitable. Its main advantage is the preservation of the corneal thickness. With the LASEK method, the flap is prepared by applying alcohol to the corneal epithelium, opened manually, the refractive error is corrected with the excimer laser and the flap is put back in its place.
