There are various types of technologies out there. Some procedures don't even require you to get your ''eye sliced''. If you're scared of that part, look into some ''toucheless'' methods.

- What is "No Touch" or "touchless" PRK?

"No touch" is transepithelial PRK (Photorefractivekeratotomy) with the where the top layer of the cornea (the epithelium) is removed by the laser beam.'' (Coal Harbour Lasik Eye Centre | Frequently Asked Questions)

The laser does the whole thing. It takes 3 months to fully heal, as opposed to 6 with the eye slicing method.

Consultations are free so I would try to get more than one opinion by trying various places, because they DO want your money. I know a woman who got refused in one place but approved in another..... weird no....?
