hello
you underwent PRK IN 2003 and if you are having power now this means that you are having progressive myopia this can happen with some individual .usually power stabilzes after 19-20 years .at what age you got operated.
now you can go for contact lenses.

welcome to healthcaremagic portal
What you apparently have is a progressive myopia..This has to be followed up.In such cases the power can still progress.In few cases this power keeps on progressing.you can use contact lenses for the time being
