PRK Surgical Procedure

Photorefractive Keratectomy, also known as PRK, is our 1st generation of Laser Vision Correction. PRK is a type of laser eye surgery commonly used to treat patients with Myopia (nearsighted), Hyperopia (farsighted), or have astigmatism. PRK can be the procedure of choice for patients whose cornea is too thin. PRK is a procedure that is an alternative to SMILE® and LASIK. It offers the same vision correction as SMILE® and LASIK but differs in the way the surface of the cornea is prepared. \

When PRK is performed, the outer covering of the eye is removed, and the EX500 Excimer Laser is used to reshape the cornea.

Once the laser has been completed, a bandage contact lens is placed protecting the eye. Over the next 4-7 days, the soft outer covering begins to grow back and heal. During your recovery, you can see, and function normally.
