It seems there have been quite a few PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) procedures at our office over the last month or two. I find often times our patients or patients-to-be believe PRK is outdated, as well as the technology associated with this procedure. In fact, this is not true. To this day, PRK provides patients outstanding results that are achieved with less risk than with the now, more popular, LASIK. In the past, the down side with PRK was the amount of time required to recover and the level of discomfort associated with the procedure. However, over the past several months – with the help of medicated eye drops and Tylenol with codeine – discomfort levels have been very tolerable, according to some of our more recent patients. PRK is a fantastic procedure for correcting refractive errors, with state-of-the-art custom-wavefront technology available. In addition, it can allow patients who are not LASIK candidates (corneas too thin or past retinal detachments) to experience life without correction as well.
