Photorefractive Keratectomy is a less used procedure due to LASIK. However, it is still the procedure used when LASIK is not the best choice due to eye irregularities. As with all laser surgery, there is always a risk and side effects such as ongoing light sensitivity and halos. It is important to talk with your doctor about the risks in your specific case.
