In brief: No
Most people are good candidates from some kind of laser refractive surgery like prk or lasik but there are many who are not.
See your eye doctor to determine whether you are a good candidate.

In brief: Depends
Prk is a form of refractive surgery with the laser in which the correction is applied directly to the cornea without the use of a flap.
It is a bit more painful than lasik and can be used in some patients with thinner corneas. The long term results are the same as lasik.
