PRK Achieves Similar Results to LASIK with a Lower Risk of Side Effects
Clear Vision for a Lifetime
In less than 15 minutes, PRK, or photo refractive keratectomy, can help you achieve nearly perfect vision that lasts a lifetime.
Low Risk of Complications
Since PRK does not create a flap in the cornea like LASIK, there is no risk of flap complications and a low risk of infection. Patients with active jobs or lifestyles also do not have to worry about the flap dislodging and causing issues.
Good for Thin or Thick Corneas
To qualify for LASIK, your cornea must be thick enough to accommodate the flap. With PRK, the laser does not penetrate as deeply into the cornea. As a result, PRK provides those with thin corneas a safe, effective alternative.
