LASEK can be used for patients where LASIK is unsuitable, often because of a too thin cornea.
Results are similar to those obtained with LASIK, at least when small to moderate shortsightedness or farsightedness needs to be corrected, but recovery of the corneal surface is much slower. Recovery of functional vision happens after 3 to 5 days. The refractive result is stabilised within a period of 3 weeks to a few months. The advantage, compared to PRK, is that there is less pain after surgery.
