LASIK vs. PRK

In a LASIK surgery, the surgeon uses a laser on the cornea to create a flap of tissue. After the flap is created, the laser shapes the inner layers of the cornea. Once the reshaping is finished, the flap is put back down over the eye where it will take a few days to heal over the corrected cornea.

If you have certain eye conditions including chronic dry eyes, PRK may be a better option for you. While LASIK cuts a flap in the surrounding tissue, PRK completely removes the outer layer of the cornea. After this, a laser will reshape the cornea, then the outer layer will regrow for crisp clear vision.
