Lasek or ICL ?
Hi, im 19 years old and I don't feel like waiting until I'm 21 to do the icl surgery, but I heard Lasek is good for people with high prescriptions -20. I'm planning on doing LASEK on my 20th birthday but I'm not sure if it’s right for me or not?

With -20, you don't need any kind of laser procedure. You need ICL. Not even close. How long has your prescription been stable?

Whether or not you "feel like waiting" has nothing to do with it.
You cannot decide to have Lasik when you turn 20. That's not a "magic number".
Your eye doctor will tell you when you can have Lasik. Your prescription needs to be stable for a certain period of time before the procedure is done.
