LASIK vs PRK

In LASIK, there is a flap creation before doing corneal bed reshaping using excimer laser. On the other hand, in PRK, after removing the epithelium using spatula or alcohol,the surgeon will reshape the cornea directly. The recovery period in LASIK is faster. Dryness is less with PRK. LASIK and PRK visual acuity endpoint is more or less the same.
