I'm a LASIK and PRK surgeon. I'm quite an advocate for PRK because
the majority of complications surrounding refractive surgery are related to the corneal flap. PRK is essentially LASIK without a flap. This is not to say that there aren't issues with PRK, particularly with the recovery time, but if I was going to have refractive surgery, I would consider PRK. As mentioned above, if you are close to the age of cataract surgery, you may wish to wait. Lens based surgeries are great and your vision can be customized at that time. Having LASIK or PRK before cataract surgery actually makes visual customization during cataract surgery less predictable.
