An eye doctor can help a patient to determine whether or not he is a good candidate for PRK surgery. Patients who are considering this procedure should visit the eye doctor for a thorough examination in order to determine if they are an ideal candidate and if the procedure is likely to be successful. In general, good candidates for PRK surgery include those who have mild to moderate myopia or hyperopia, those who have career or leisure requirements which make having a cut flap impossible and patients who are not eligible for LASIK based on the shape or thickness of their cornea.
