Are you looking for PRK Eye Surgery? Your search ends here.
Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is an eye surgery that corrects the cornea’s shape with a laser. It is the most effective vision correction procedure to treat the following conditions:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism (an irregular eye shape that causes blurry vision).

PRK surgery is the best option for those who have a higher risk of eye injury. PRK is better than any other form of eye surgery be is LASIK. However, the results of both surgeries are almost the same. LASIK takes a few days to show up with the proper result whereas, PRK takes longer. As prescribed by surgeons, PRKis considered as much safer than LASIK, and it lasts long.

What is PRK Eye Surgery?

It is a type of refractive surgery. This kind of surgery uses a laser to treat vision problems caused by refractive errors. You have a refractive error when your eye does not refract light properly. In this procedure, the top layer of the cornea is removed.

Although PRK surgery is expensive than Lasik surgery, its effects are more noticeable. The difference between both surgeries is approx $1200. Lasik surgery ranges between $1000- $2600 per eye and, PRK ranges from $2000-$4000 for both eyes. Results of PRK are much better than the normal LASIK surgery.
