Yes, Mick, PRK is great too, only the post-op care is much more painful for about two weeks or so. Some patients don't like to deal with that discomfort. LASIK post-op is pretty much pain-free. But if you have thin corneas, of course, you have no choice. Also, contact sports athletes, pilots etc have to have PRK so they wouldn't risk moving their flap.
