In brief: Not as deep as LASIK
The flap in the cornea is not as deep so epi lasik is safer in patients with thin corneas.

In brief: Epi-LASIK
I quit performing epi-lasik since it did not provide any significant benefit over standard surface laser (phototherapeutic keratectomy prk).
I currently perform lasik or prk for my laser patients.
