Clearer Vision with PRK
Ideal Candidates for PRK
You should be healthy and must have a refractive error that is stable for a year (between +5.00 to -12.00 diopters).
Just like Lasik, those with pre-existing conditions like diabetes, glaucoma, rheumatoid arthritis, collagen vascular disease, and keratoconus are not ideal candidates for PRK laser surgery.
Those who have used steroids before may also be disqualified for the PRK procedure.
PRK Difference with Lasik
PRK is the older procedure than Lasik, and the main difference is that PRK does not involve laser to create a flap in the top layer of your corneal tissue. With PRK, a portion of the outer, top layer of the cornea(epithelium) is removed gently during the procedure.
Unlike Lasik, PRK patients need a longer period for the eye to heal. After surgery, the eye will feel like it has gone through a scrape or abrasion.
A soft contact lens is placed on the eye that acts like a bandage for four to five days.
Vision is blurry at first but will gradually improve as the surface of the epithelium heals.
You need to get plenty of rest during the first week after the surgery. You may return to work once you feel confident with your vision.
According to studies, PRK patients get the same results of Lasik patients after three weeks from surgery.
