LASEK takes the best of both PRK and LASIK. As in PRK, there is no microkeratome used during the LASEK procedure and the surface cells are replaced, like LASIK, for quicker visual recovery. However since only the epithelial cells (the outer most layer of cornea) are used in making the LASEK flap, there is no permanent corneal flap.
