How much is LASEK surgery?

The cost of LASEK is similar to the cost of LASIK; typically about $1,000 to $2,300 for traditional LASEK or $2,500 to $4,000 for custom LASEK.

Is LASEK better than LASIK?

LASEK stands for Laser Assisted Sub-Epithelial Keratectomy. It’s a better choice if you have a thin cornea or a medical condition that makes laser eye surgery more challenging to complete. During the surgery, only one laser will be used to correct your vision— rather than the two that are used in LASIK.

What are the possible side effects of LASEK eye surgery?

Potential Side Effects of LASIK. A small number of patients experience mild side effects from LASIK surgery.

  • Light Sensitivity. A very normal side effect of LASIK surgery is experiencing light sensitivity-particularly in the few hours following treatment.
  • Halos and Starbursts.
  • Dry Eyes.
  • Which is better LASIK or LASEK eye surgery?

    Both LASEK and LASIK are generally safe and effective, but LASEK patients report slightly better long-term results.

There is also a decreased risk of infection and decreased incidence of corneal haze after LASEK. 1 

    What happens after LASEK eye surgery?

    After LASEK eye surgery, expectations are similar to what can be expected after LASIK. The flap created by LASEK eye surgery heals in about four to seven days , and the patient usually wears a special contact lens that acts as a bandage for up to four days after surgery.

    What is LASIK surgery and why it necessary?

    LASIK eye surgery is an outpatient procedure done to correct vision issues such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. If you have original Medicare and your doctor has recommended LASIK for you, you may be wondering whether your insurance will pay for it. Medicare covers only surgeries that are considered medically necessary.
