In brief: LASIK
Lasik is now the standard of care and produces excellent results in the nearsighted (myopic) patient.
It is accurate and safe and now has a 15 year track record of safety.

In brief: Depends
Only a refractive surgeon can determine which exact procedure is best for you.
The best procedure for you will depend on your goals and the physical characteristics of your eye.
