PRK or Intacs for -5 Myopia?
I would like to reduce my myopia and dependancy on glasses without needing reading glasses. Intacs or PRK could correct me to around -2, greatly improving my distance vision while preserving my near vision. I am leaning towards Intacs as ive read they were safer and reversable.
Me and my parents were wondering why Intacs isn't done often for myopia. Wouldn't Intacs be a great option for many, especially since Intacs can be removed if you aren't satisfied? I would love to learn more about my options, thanks for your time!
