Do you lead a busy or adventurous life that makes contact lenses and glasses a hassle? For many people, the same recreational activities or lifestyle factors that make them interested in laser vision correction so they can ditch the daily eyewear also make them ineligible for popular procedures like LASIK. That’s where PRK comes in to make lasting vision improvement possible for every lifestyle!
What is PRK Surgery?
PRK, which stands for PhotoRefractive Keratectomy, is a refractive surgery that aims to improve vision. It addresses refractive errors like hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and astigmatism. These refractive errors result from the shape of the cornea. If the cornea is too curved, myopia occurs, and if it is too flat, hyperopia occurs, while an unevenly curved cornea causes astigmatism.
Like other laser vision correction procedures, PRK reshapes the cornea to correct these issues. This allows light to focus properly on the retina, restoring clear vision.
