A Guide to PRK vs LASIK at Any Age




PRK and LASIK are the most popular vision correction procedures today. Both surgeries will get rid of your vision problems but the procedures of both are different according to how they are performed by surgeons. Our easy to understand infographic lists everything in point form right from the pre-operative instructions to the actual surgical procedures as well as the post-operative care you should take for both of them.

Our infographic covers the entire PRK vs LASIK process with special attention to the following points in detail:

  • Who is the right candidate?
  • Pre-operative Instructions
  • Procedures for both surgeries 
  • Post-operative instructions
  • Points you should consider prior to both surgeries

All patients who are good candidates for LASIK can opt for PRK, but vice versa does not hold true.

People with high-risk professions, athletes and sportsmen prefer PRK over LASIK to eliminate the risk of corneal flap displacement. Though both surgeries give very similar results, their recovery times differ significantly as PRK recovery takes a bit longer than the LASIK procedure. 

Our infographic will help you overcome your anxiety about opting for eye correction surgery. Elder patients tend to have slightly dry eyes which get aggravated if LASIK is performed on them. 
Browsing through this infographic is sure to help make your choice a lot easier.
