PRK

PRK is short for photorefractive keratectomy and is the refractive procedure most often chosen by those with extreme lifestyles. It was the first refractive surgery to be widely applied around the world and is performed in three, painless steps:

Step 1

Numbing eye drops are placed in each eye, and the eye lids are painlessly positioned away from the eye surface so as to keep them from interfering with the procedure.

Step 2

The thin outer layer of the cornea (the epithelium) is removed.

Step 3

The refractive correction is performed on the deeper cornea with the excimer laser.

Step 4

A disposable contact lens is placed on the eye to be left there until the surface of the cornea has healed over, which usually takes about 3-5 days.
