If you don't want to flip the egg, baste it with a little fat from the pan and it will help set the yolk.

In recent times, whenever I fry eggs, just before they're "done", I add a couple of drops of water to them (and I mean two or three drops), put a lid on the pan, cook for a few seconds and then turn the heat off and let them steam for a couple of seconds. This sets the yolk and yet doesn't result in the browned bottom - which I detest.
