Photorefractive keratectomy is a type of refractive surgery to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is a popular alternative for LASIK eye surgery. The main difference between PRK eye surgery and LASIK eye surgery is that unlike LASIK which involves accessing the corneal tissue by making a flap, in PRK.
Our surgeons will remove the outer skin of the cornea so that laser directly touches the cornea’s surface.
PRK has been beneficial to many individuals who were struggling with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. PRK laser eye surgery enabled them to achieve a more precise vision and independence from glasses or contact lenses.
The candidates must follow the precautions and keep in mind that in PRK is suggested to candidates with too thin Cornea who can't withstand LASIK. They should be at least 18 years old, with a stable eye prescription for at least a year and no severe eye disease or injury or infection that could heighten the surgical risks or outcome.
