Similar to LASIK, PRK can treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by removing tiny amounts of tissue from the surface of the cornea. During your laser vision correction consultation, we will determine which procedure is best for your individual situation.
The results of PRK and LASIK are very similar, and PRK may be a more effective alternative for some guests. Because the laser focuses on the top of the cornea instead of underneath, it does not require a flap, making it the ideal vision correction procedure for some athletes and some military personnel. The recovery period for PRK can be a bit longer, but the results are comparable.
