What can PRK Correct?

Much like LASIK eye surgery, PRK is a safe refractive procedure that utilizes the excimer laser to reshape the cornea and improve nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The amount of tissue reshaped depends on the severity of the prescription. Once the cornea has flattened, light rays are more easily focused upon the retina.

How does PRK Work?

PRK differs from LASIK in that no flap of tissue is created prior to resculpting the cornea with the ALLEGRETTO WAVE excimer laser. In LASIK, this flap creation does enable a faster recovery period. Sometimes PRK is a better option than LASIK for a patient if the cornea is too thin or irregularly shaped where flap creation may be relatively unsafe. The visual outcomes and results between LASIK and PRK are very similar.
