Only my right eye has a very bad astigmatism and far sighted. (-4.25) So my right eye ball is shaped like a football. I was wondering if I am a good candidate for Lasik or PRK ? Which one (LASIK OR PRK) is better for my type of eye? Is it too risky or not going to have a great result? If not, are there better alternatives? Thank you so much!

Lasik or PRK for astigmatism
Lasik can't treat as high astigmatidm
prk hurts and often scars
i would advise lasek + MMC as you might need an enhancement for residual astigmatism after your primary oricedure
make sure you don't have KC before you proceed
