PRK vs LASIK with (slightly) thin corneas?

I have slightly thin corneas (483 & 504) and was told by some doctors that LASIK would be ok; the others said PRK might be better for me. Which would you recommend? Note: I have a low pain tolerance but am nervous to go LASIK because I am 27 and need enough cornea for adjustments later in life if I need them.

Prk vs lasek vs lasik for thin corneas

you are smarter than some of the doctors you saw
do NOT get LASIK if you have a thin cornea, it is NOT safe and you are CORRECT you are young, will progress, and then may NOT be able to be enhanced:(
just get an ASA = LASEK or epiLASEK as it is as safe as PRK but DOES NOT HURT:)
