Because the epithelial flap never heals, some who have had LASIK experience problems with the flap becoming dislocated. Exposure to high altitudes may increase the risk of an epithelial flap dislocation.

Currently, the best solution is select a Femtosecond Laser.

The fundamental difference between original Keratome and Femtosecond Laser is LASIK flaps cut either with a blade or created with a laser. The femtosecond flap adherence is 250%-350% stronger with laser flaps compared to blade flaps at 10 weeks post-op. Laser created flaps of Femtosecond means a safer surgery as the results are more accurate, so fewer enhancements needed, and the eye is left stronger. Of course, reduce rubbing or substantial contact with the eye as much as possible is absolutely necessary to help the flap heals.
