LASIK vs LASEK for high myopia

You should never get Lasik or IntraLase or femptosecond for an extreme Rx over -8. That's just stupid. In the USA it would border on malpractice. This is because cutting a flap wastes tissue and is unsafe for high Rxs

  I've Lasered the highest Rx in the USA successfully
