Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is another type of refractive laser eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
This surgery removes the outer corneal layer so it is a good option for people with thin corneas who may not be candidates for LASIK.

You’ll start with an assessment to gauge whether you are a good candidate for LASIK. During the procedure, your surgeon will use a laser to reshape your cornea, allowing light to refract correctly so your vision is clear. LASIK can correct various refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
Serious complications from LASIK are exceedingly rare, allowing patients to enjoy clear vision without issues.
