LASIK and PRK are two of the most common laser vision correction procedures. Many patients ask about the difference, especially when they first see the less commonly known PRK surgery.

Visian ICL is a vision correction method that utilizes an implantable lens to give you clear vision without glasses or contacts. This procedure is a great option for many people, including patients who do not qualify for LASIK.

Visian ICL differs from LASIK in a few important ways, most notably that the procedure is reversible and that patients with thin corneas may still be good candidates for the treatment. Learn more about Visian ICL benefits in the infographic below.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a vision correction method that has been used successfully for decades. This refractive surgery can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses in patients with hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism.

If you are interested in better vision but are not a candidate for LASIK, then PRK eye surgery may be a good choice for you. PRK is an established, safe, and effective LASIK alternative that can help you get to 20/20 vision or better.Ditch your glasses with PRK vision correction surgery | Kirk Eye Center

If you have glasses or contacts, there have probably been times where you've become frustrated with them. Glasses slipping down your nose while trying to run, hike, or exercise; contacts falling out at inopportune moments, or forgetting to bring fresh contacts and solution on a trip; waking up and not being able to do anything until you put your glasses on.
