If Lasik isn't right for you...

Alternatives to Lasik

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

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