Dello Russo LaserVision provides LASIK and Lasek to residents from Brooklyn, Long Island, Manhattan, and other neighboring cities in New York and North Jersey.

What Is the Difference Between LASIK vs.Lasek?

The difference between LASIK and Lasek in New York and North Jersey is a matter of technology and procedure. Lasek is the same as PRK (Photo Refractive Keratectomy), which was the first laser vision correction surgery. Dr. Joseph Dello Russo was one of the pioneers in PRK. Although Lasek yields similar results, it requires a longer healing time than LASIK. In fact, LASIK was developed to provide faster recovery for patients who undergo laser vision correction.

Each treatment features differing techniques for the procedure. For example, Lasek involves a cleaning of the top layer of cells from your cornea, followed by a reshaping. LASIK, however, requires the creation of a flap, under which the surgeon can reconfigure the cornea for better vision.

At Dello Russo LaserVision in New York and North Jersey, Dr. Joseph Dello Russo and Dr. Jeff Dello Russo typically offer Lasek to patients whose corneas are too thin for LASIK. To identify which procedure would be best for you, we recommend that you schedule an initial consultation at one of our convenient locations. We welcome LASIK and Lasek patients from across the region, including individuals from Brooklyn, Long Island, and Manhattan.
