Surgeon can decide: No one procedure is best. Each eye is unique. Sometimes a visx laser and other times allegretto may be better. Flap can be made with a laser or an automated keratome safely.

Yes: Prk can be used in the setting of a thin cornea. Treatment is done directly to surface of the eye - identical outcome to lasik for most refractive errors. However, recovery is much longer. Icl surgery (implantable collamer lens) is an intraocular procedure where a lens is placed inside the eye.See 2 more doctor answers
