Excellent outcomes, quicker healing, a high success ratio and negligible complications of corrective eye surgeries have made people more comfortable and confident of opting for safe and effective vision correction procedures. But are you aware of the fact that two individuals with unique eye conditions can undergo two different eye surgeries and experience completely different outcomes and side-effects? If you are under-informed about the available treatment options, it is absolutely critical to know why you should choose LASIK or PRKLASIK or PRK. Those who desire to experience a world of clear vision without wearing any glasses or contacts need to know their suitability, risks and odds of success because a few minutes of self-guided research can mean the difference between painful complications and a success story. So before you take the big leap with your ophthalmologist, take a closer look at this infographic that offers prospective patients a comprehensive base-level understanding of both the procedures to facilitate a well-informed decision.

This infographic submission serves as a handy guide for those debating between PRK and LASIK, or for those who simply want to know about the different procedures. The infographic has a fairly consistent design throughout, though the typography in the procedure section appears different. The brown and blue establishes a color code for PRK and LASIK respectively early on, which is a good strategy, as long as that execution remains the same throughout. Unfortunately, pre- and post-operative instruction sections are a bit confusing because of this, as it's unclear whether or not the instructions apply to both procedures or not. There's a lot of good information here, but it would benefit from less confusing design and layout choices. Overall, we give this a C.
