Why is LASIK surgery so popular if PRK surgery is so much better?

As I understand it, LASIK involves cutting a flap out of your corneal layer (which can fold out again - *scary*!). However, PRK doesn't involve any cutting, but "re-shapes" the eye with lasers.
So are there any advantages to LASIK over PRK which makes the former so much more well-known and popular? Why doesn't everyone get PRK instead of LASIK?Share this
