Hello, Even though the residual cornea after your treatment would be above 250 Micron (the lowest number which is considered to be a safe and within the standard of care), some physicians consider any cornea less than 500 micron at a higher risk for destabilization following any type of corneal thining procedure and advise against them.  ICL(intraclocular lens) is an intraocular procedure that in my opinion has a much higher risk of long term serious complications than does PRK(photo refractive keratotomy.) needed corneal thickness for PRK and laser varies a little, so please specify the value of yours. Or use contact lenses till age of 30 after that you will be able to chose any of the above.
