Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)

Photorefractive keratectomy reshapes the outer layer of the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The procedure uses the same laser as the LASIK procedure.

Although LASIK is more common these days, PRK is a good alternative for patients who cannot undergo LASIK surgery because their cornea is too thin. While LASIK patients have less discomfort and obtain good vision more quickly after surgery, improvement with PRK is gradual and takes weeks or even months to achieve the visual outcome goal. Our skilled doctors can help you assess which procedure is right for you.
