What are the Differences Between LASIK and PRK?

In short, the two surgeries are quite similar, but unlike LASIK, PRK does not require the creation of a flap in the cornea. KPR is just as effective as LASIK. Like the latter, it uses the excimer laser to reshape the cornea to improve vision. This surgery is used in patients who do not meet the inclusion criteria for LASIK surgery. People whose corneas are too thin or irregularly shaped are better candidates for PRK.

Individuals seeking laser vision correction must first go through a rigorous screening process to verify their eligibility to receive the surgery.
