PRK eye surgery, LASEK and Laser Surface Treatment are different types of laser eye surgery procedures used to correct a person’s vision, potentially reducing or eliminating the need for contacts or glasses.
The main difference between PRK eye surgery, LASEK and LASIK Eye Surgery is the healing time and what part of the eye surface is reshaped. The biggest advantage of PRK eye surgery / LASEK is that it requires no incisions. Since PRK / LASEK does not create a flap, but rather treats the outermost surface. PRK / LASEK generally has a slightly longer healing process than LASIK.
LASIK Eye Surgery creates a small flap on the outer surface of the eye that is later returned to its place. This flap allows LASIK treatment to remove tissues from just below the surface and use the flap to cover it, providing protection as well as a faster healing time.
