PRK - Photorefractive Keratectomy Vision Correction Surgery

PRK Vision Correction

First introduced in the 1980s, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is the original laser vision correction procedure.

To perform PRK surgery, the laser eye surgeon first removes the thin corneal covering known as the epithelium. He then reshapes the cornea using the VISX Star 4 laser. The epithelium regenerates in just under a week.

PRK, one of the first refractive surgeries, eliminates or reduces…

  • Moderate Nearsightedness (Myopia)
  • Hyperopia (Farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism

Is PRK Right for You?

  • PRK is a better option for those with thin or irregular corneas.
  • Provides same long-term vision benefits as LASIK.
  • Less risk of post-operative dry eye.
