Can I go for Lasik? (photos)

My eyesight is -1.75 of both eyes and doctor recommended me not to go for LASIK, as I have thin cornea. He told me about the risk of some kind of problem.

Due to your thin cornea, LASIK is not recommended, you can consider PRK or LASEK. As always I recommend getting a second opinion with a different refractive ophthalmologist to confirm your options

you can't get lasik it's not safeGet a LASEK it's ten times safer than lasikPlus recovery is fast and painlessOr you can get a PRK if your doctor didn't learn LASEK but that takes longer to heal is painful and can scar
