If I am not suitable for Epi-LASIK then is there an alternative?

If you fall outside of the recommended criteria for laser eye surgery or have a medical/eye condition which rules you out then there is an alternative.

The alternative is an implantable contact lens (ICL), also known as an ‘Intra-Ocular lens’ or IOL. This is the insertion of a contact lens inside the eye to enable it to focus properly. If you already wear contact lenses then you may think that this doesn’t sound any different to the ones you already wear. However, the main difference here is that the ICL/IOL is implanted inside the eye.

With normal contact lens wear, the lens sits on top of the eye.
