LASIK vs PRK
LASIK & PRK are types of refractive eye surgery that treat vision problems like farsightedness, astigmatism, and nearsightedness. Both PRK and LASIK use a laser to reshape the cornea to help you see clearly. However, these procedures do it in slightly different ways.
PRK removes the outer layer of the cornea, which grows back over time, while LASIK creates a thin flap in the cornea. Both LASIK and PRK have pros and cons, therefore, your eye doctor will help you determine which procedure is right for you.
If you’re active, you might prefer LASIK because you’ll have clear vision faster. However, PRK may be a better choice for people with dry eyes or thin corneas.
