Should i proceed with PRK or ICL.will there be any further issues with my eyes? can i proceed with any of these 2 treatments? Please help me to decide.

ICL is more risky and also more expensive PRK hurts abs takes forever to healLasik is unsafe for thin corneas/high RxYour best option would be LASEK which is like a modern PRK
