I have got lasiked or prk on tomorrow. Which one is better?

Postby happyreadygo » Sat Dec 29, 2007 6:46 pm

I am 25.
The doctor said that My eyes is
-4.00 -1.00 and-3.75 -.50 . (It was -3.75 -.5 and -3.5 -0.00 2 years ago.)
My thickness is more than 600 .
My pupil is very larger than usual.

He said he 's going to have me lasik. However I'd like to prk after I search for the internet. There 's no flap but more pain right?

Can the doctor do PRK as well as lasik?
The lasik is on 30Dec 12.00am. and I am start working on 2Jan . Is it enough for the eyes to function after PRK (or lasik).

Thanks

You should read our article about Lasik and pupil size issues.

Correct, and the vision recovery after PRK is much slower.

From the information you have provided it appears that both PRK and Lasik would be options.

That depends upon what type of work you do and on the greatly variable vision recovery. You should have "functional fuzzy" vision after four days, but it is not likely that you vision would be very crisp or clear.
