PRK and LASIK use lasers or tiny blades to modify the cornea of your eye to either resolve myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism (irregular eye shape). 

 

 

Lasik:

A small incision is made allowing an opening into the epithelium. Then an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea.

Pros: Quick Recovery, no stitches, fewer follow up appointments or medications, high rate of success

Cons: Not viable for people with high risk of eye injury, greater chance of dry eye, greater risk of poor night vision

PRK:

A part of the top layer of the cornea is removed called the epithelium. then an excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea. 

Pros: Long history of success, small chance of long term complications, High success rate

Cons: Long recovery time (30 days), requires bandages, more discomfort (lasts several weeks)

Price:

Both procedures cost around $2500-$5000 however PRK may be more overall than LASIK due to more post-op check ups
