ICL and PRK?

My surgeon recommended I get an ICL then get prk done on top of it? How risky is this or is it even widely done at all?

These are both relatively low risk procedures. I wouldn't consider this at all outside of the norm for procedures that I perform- as well as many of my colleagues who offer refractive surgery as a staple of their offerings.
