Without : Without question - you should have prk. Surface ablation is as effective as lasik, and has the same safety profile. While vision recovers faster with lasik, the long term results are identical. More importantly - with your potential risk of weakening of the eye with lasik - i would in general recommend surface ablation. Obviously - without seeing the maps - i can not know for certain - but this is just a general answer to your question. Best regards bill trattler, md www.Centerforeyecare.Com. ...Read more

While : While eyes my heal differently and result in minor deviations from the desired refractive outcomes, the majority of lasik treatmets are extremely accurate. If required, your surgeon will perform a second treatment to achieve the final refractive goal. Keep in mind that lasik is similar to receiving a permanent pair of glasses or contact lenses for your eyes. Therefore, if your refraction needs change over time, you may require additional lasik "touchups" to remain free from glasses. ...Read more
