A perfect choice for some patients who are not candidates for All Laser Lasik but still desire a Bladeless Laser Vision Correction.
There are many patients who are poor candidates for LASIK because of thin corneas, large pupils, corneal irregularities or dry eye. In the past, LASIK was not an option for these patients. However, thanks to Epi-LASIK, the vast majority of these patients can qualify for the new Epi-LASIK procedure.
Epi-LASIK can eliminate most of the potential complications of LASIK, including glare and halos, by eliminating the need to create a corneal flap. The Epi-LASIK procedure uses a unique technology (EpiLift SystemT) to mechanically separate the epithelium (top layer of the corneal surface). Unlike LASIK, no sharp blades or cutting are required. Combined with Custom Cornea LASIK, where a custom map of the cornea is created for maximum results in laser surgery, Epi-LASIK can provide an opportunity for people who have been turned down in the past.
Toyos Clinic is currently the only clinic in Tennessee with the experience and technology to perform Bladeless Epi-LASIK.
