What is the difference between SBK and LASIK?

SBK, or Sub-Bowman’s Keratomileusis is an advanced form of LASIK.  Unlike in traditional LASIK, where a metallic blade is used to make the corneal flap, in SBK, an advanced precise customizable femtosecond laser is used instead.  In clinical studies, SBK has been shown to provide a faster visual recovery, less dry eye symptoms, better nigh vision and stronger biomechanical flap.  It has also shown to have a higher safety profile compared with LASIK performed with a blade.  This procedure is the latest advancement in laser vision correction and is offered at Boghossian Vision.  To find out if you are a candidate for SBK, contact us for a consultation.
