You may want to discuss some surgical alternatives to Lasik with your eye doctor:

  1. Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a laser procedure used to reduce myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism without creating a corneal flap.
  2. Astigmatic keratotomy (AK) is an incisional procedure to reduce astigmatism.
  3. Intrastromal corneal rings are clear, thin, polymer inlays placed on the eye to correct low myopia only.
