Does anyone know if it is safe to have lasEK performed after having lasIK performed, i had a flap complication and there was a tear in my cornea now surgeon is recomending lasEK instead...

LASEK (surface ablation while keeping the epithelium) and PRK are considered appropriate after Lasik. Epi-Lasik is not advised as the blunt separator can disrupt the Lasik flap.
