As you can see in the table above, refractive vision correction performed in the interior of the cornea (LASIK) offers numerous advantages over refractive vision correction performed on the cornea's surface (PRK). This is undoubtedly the reason that LASIK has become the corrective surgery of choice for both doctors and patients. Which procedure you should have is best determined by consulting with your surgeon.
Although the surgeon cannot promise 20/20 vision without correction, historically ninety-five percent of typical myopic patients achieve vision within two or three lines of 20/20 without correction. In fact, the vast majority of patients can drive without glasses the day after their LASIK surgery. With current technology and more accurate LASIK nomograms, ninety-eight percent of patients see 20/20 or better, and the majority see some of the 20/15 letters on the Snellen chart. Patients are astounded with their new ability to see more clearly.
Because this book is dedicated to LASIK vision correction, nearly all of its chapters discuss the LASIK procedure and the important things you need to know concerning it. A brief explanation of the many other refractive procedures, past and present-- including PRK--can be found in Chapter Eleven.
