I had PK surgery - which leaves cuts in your eye- for vision correction when age 49. Now 15yrs later due to aging and astigmatism., I am wearing glasses again.. Can lasix surgery help me and is it safe for me?

LASIK after PK
After PK usually we would recommend PRK. We have found creating the LASIK flap on a cornea post PK can cause some shift in the astigmatism. We have found more reliable results with PRK. PRK does take a little longer to heal over LASIK. On average we perform 3-4 PRK per month on post PK patients. Be sure to find a surgeon who is frequently performing PRK after PK.
