Please proceed with your query
sry Good Afternoon
I wanted to go for Lasik Surgery... I went to Sankara Hospital in Bangalore for initial investigation...
Doctor there has suggested PRK
how is this different from usual Lasik?
he told something like power is less and we dont normally go for Lasik...PRK is better
i want to know which is better
PRK is Photorefractive Keratotomy
It is done for milder case as your doctor said
The decision will depend on your problem and can be decided upon by the operating eye surgeon
is it safe?
Yes, it is safe
i have seen a video in youtube for PRK and it is quite disturbing...
