What is PRK?

 PRK is a refractive surgery technique that is used with the goal of changing the corneal surface curvature. Similir to LASIK, PRK allows the correction of refractive problems like Myopia, Hypermetropy or Astigmatism.  It differes from LASIK in that a corneal flap is not created, yet the corneal epithelium is removed.  Certain patients have corneas that are to thin to with stand the creation of a flap, as is done in LASIK and IntraLASIK.  PRK is the procedure of choice for those whose flaps are too thin.  Other conditions, such as prior Refractive Surgery procedures (i.e. RK) also favor the use of PRK over LASIK or IntraLASIK. After the procedure, the patient will experiment a slight discomfort for the next 2 or 3 days.  PRK pasight will get better after a week and it will reach its highest level in three weeks, stabilizing after 3 months.
