Additional Information:

1. Most clinics offer LASIK with a choice of Microkeratome or IntraLase. The difference is the former uses an oscillating blade to create the corneal flap while the latter uses laser, which is a more precise method that is known to result in less complications and patients reporting better overall vision quality. From the above, IntraLase LASIK costs 30% more than standard LASIK on average.

2. Wavefront is an advanced measurement system that creates a 3-D map of how your eye processes images to guide the laser in reshaping the cornea. This allows the treatment of potential problems like glare, shadows and halos, that standard LASIK cannot. From the above, Wavefront LASIK costs up to 50% more than standard LASIK.

3. Epi-LASIK is a modification of PRK, where a blunt seperator is used to make a superficial flap. This method may be recommended to some patients but the disadvantages are there is more pain, higher chances of haze and scarring, and recovery is slower.
