This is indeed an excellent question. You see, most people were actually into the idea of getting eye surgery get a bit discouraged when they find out that, PRK is a bit more expensive than LASIK. Both of these procedures are actually quite fast and they can bring great results at around the same amount of time. So, why is one more expensive than the other? Is there a problem with the procedure? Perhaps a bit of danger?
It’s all about your corneas
Well, no. The actual reason as to why the PRK laser eye surgery is more expensive than LASIK surgery is basically because of the fact that, PRK is a speciality procedure that is meant to address unusual eye measurements. That means that, if you have very thin corneas, if you are in danger of getting dry eyes or if you’re corneas are slightly irregular in any way then, LASIK might not be the right choice for you.
PRK is much more sophisticated in this particular case. It was created specifically in order to be able and address these kinds of problems. The procedure is not dangerous at all but as you can understand it requires the doctor to be a bit more careful with this delicate process. Not to say of course that, the LASIK process is not a delicate process as well. However, quite often, you will notice that people who are actually quite good candidate for LASIK will choose PRK.
A delicate procedure for everyone
Why will they choose to pay more money when they can get the simple procedure? Well, the truth is that, PRK is a much more comfortable procedure. Yes, it might take a couple of days longer to heal but, we can guarantee that you will feel absolutely no pain or any kind of discomfort during the process or after it. With LASIK, you might feel a bit of discomfort during the process which is something that many patients do not want.
If you want to see whether you are an appropriate candidate for LASIK or PRK then, the only thing you have to do would be to talk to your eye doctor. Here she will be able to guide you to the correct type of surgery. However, if you want to make sure that you’re going to be getting the much more extensive and much more thorough procedure, even if your corneas are completely normal then, you might want to consider taking the PRK surgery. We can guarantee that the results are going to amaze you in the most pleasant way possible.
