Dear XXXXXXX

Thank you for the query.
Zyoptix is customised lasik surgery.It will correct your refractive error and corneal abberations.
Sometimes your cornea is very thin.In such cases zyoptix cannot be done.Intralase is a better option for thin corneas.You can consult Dr XXXXXXX XXXXXXX at

Hi Dr XXXXXXX Shah,

I had done my pre-assessment check with Sankara Eye Hospital for Lasik. The doctor there has advised me to go for PRK looking at the reports...However he still gave me the option to choose from either PRK or Lasik... Please advise which is the best option...

Thanks,
XXXXXXX
