What Is Photorefractive Keratectomy?

Photorefractive Keratectomy is a refractive surgery. PRK uses an excimer laser. This can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. PRK, ultimately produces identical visual results. PRK does not require the creation of a corneal flap. Laser treatment in PRK is applied directly to the outermost corneal cells.

Candidates For PRK

Patients with thin corneas, overly steep corneas, or corneas that are too flat may be good candidates for PRK.
