PRK is an advanced laser vision correction procedure that can reduce or even eliminate the need for eyeglasses and contact lenses. This procedure is designed to improve nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism with results that can significantly enhance your visual acuity. PRK can be an effective alternative to LASIK for patients who have corneas that are too thin to qualify them as candidates for that procedure. Our experienced laser eye surgeons at Bliss Eye Associates can give you an initial consultation and vision evaluation to determine if PRK is the best option for your needs. If so, we will develop a customized treatment plan designed to improve your vision with successful results.
Candidates for PRK
Patients who are over the age of 18, have no present eye disease, and experience refractive errors in their vision are often candidates for PRK. Once you have had your vision evaluation and PRK has been determined to be a good treatment option, one of our doctors will walk you through the treatment process and tell you what you can expect. PRK is typically a quick procedure that offers essentially the same benefits as LASIK. Many of our patients who have this procedure experience significant vision improvement and a decreased dependence on corrective eyewear.
