Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


You are going to get PRK not LASIK. You are in the Marines so PRK is the only option available to you. LASIK uses a flap and you have a chance of having post procedure flap trauma, the Marines and Army only authorize PRK for marines and soldiers; PRK does not use a flap.

PRK takes longer to heal but will not have the same post surgery trauma problems. The only problem with getting the surgery before your PT test would be with the goggles in the pool. You need to work with your command to either get a waiver for goggles or postpone your PT test.

If you cannot postpone or get a waiver for your PT test then work with your command to get a block of time to account for your PRK surgery at a later date. Your command is hard on you but will be accommodate for your surgery.
