Fast, Safe, and Effective Treatment
A Quick Outpatient Procedure
PRK can usually be completed in about 15 minutes, and your designated driver can take you home shortly after your procedure.
Low Risk of Complications
Since PRK does not involve creating a flap in the cornea, there is no risk of flap complications. PRK patients with active jobs or lifestyles 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. However, because PRK does not involve creating a tissue flap, it can provide an effective alternative.
