Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

Hi, all:

I have my eyes examed by two lasik centers (different companies) recently, one company said that I am a good candidate for lasik and I have enough tissue for operation and future enhancement if needed. The second company told me that I do not have enough tissue and thus is not a candidate for lasik. But I am a candidate for PRK. They told me that PRK can get better result than lasik except it is a painful process and requires long time for healing.

So I am confused by the different results. After future discussion with doctors from these two centers. The difference is the thickness of the flap. The first company said that their famous Dr W can easily make 110 microns which can leave about 300 microns tissues after operation for future enhancement. The doctor at the second center said that there is no way to gurrenty 110 microns and their calculation is based on 150 microns.

So could anyone suggest me what to do? Should I trust the first center?
