While similar to LASIK, PRK at LasikPlus offers additional benefits.
Thanks to our surgeons’ technique and LasikPlus 100% bladeless technology, PRK offers distinct advantages over LASIK for some patients.
Who Is A Candidate for PRK?
•Recommended over LASIK for patients with thin corneas. Your LasikPlus O.D. will perform a series of diagnostic tests to determine corneal thickness during your free consultation.
•Recommended over LASIK for patients who suffer from chronic dry eye.
•May be recommended for patients with extremely active lifestyles or professions. PRK is commonly used for members of the U.S. Special Forces and at LasikPlus we often perform PRK on firefighters.
Like LASIK, PRK corrects the way light hits the cornea in order to give you clear vision. LASIK uses a laser to prepare the cornea for treatment. During the PRK process, tissue is gently wiped from the cornea.
While PRK can involve a slightly longer recovery time, it provides the same excellent results as LASIK.*
Following the PRK procedure, a soft contact lens is placed on the eye to act as a bandage. This allows patients to see and function while the corneal tissue regenerates and heals beneath it during the days immediately following the PRK treatment. Vision may be blurry during this initial recovery time and you may experience brief periods of discomfort or irritation.
Prescribed anti-inflammatory and lubricating drops will minimize post-procedural discomfort and speed-up the healing process. As with LASIK, the end results are 20/20 vision.*
Read what just a few of our 500,000+ happy patients have to say about LasikPlus.
I could not see my son's face in the morning without searching for my glasses and I could not get out of bed without tripping over anything in my path. Almost 2 years ago I had the surgery, and I can now see everything without any help, or squinting. I will never miss a smile or cute face that my child makes!
The exam was thorough and the staff explained everything throughout the process and made me know I was in capable hands. On my treatment day, I was nervous, but the staff took great care of me, and before I knew it, the procedure was over and I was home. The staff took great care of me!
After LASIK I see better than ever before in my life and the best part is I have no worries about contacts or glasses. I can ride my motorcycle worry free, I have no dry contacts, and no misplaced glasses. LASIK put my life in focus!
Enough was enough! My contacts caused conjunctivitis and my glasses hurt my ears. I am so elated with the outcome of my LASIK. Being able to see clearly without glasses or contacts, in a more natural way, has made all the difference in the world to me.
After hearing from my co-workers how great their LASIK treatments turned out and having been offered LASIK at a great value, I decided to get LASIK. It was an immediate success for me. The office staffs' knowledge was comforting. A week after my treatment, I was 20/15 and very happy.
Even though I had to drive 4 hours for each visit, I would do it all over again for the outcome. To be able to see again was something I never thought would be possible.
At LasikPlus, your treatment is comfortable and quick.
Through a free, 90-minute consultation, we determine if you’re a candidate for laser vision correction. You will undergo many tests similar to those you’ve experienced during your annual eye exam, as well as additional scans that tell us important information about your eyes as they relate to PRK.
Free Consultation Includes:
All of these factors help your surgeon determine if you are a candidate for laser vision correction, and if so, which procedure is best for your eyes. Once complete, this exam aids your surgeon in developing your unique LasikPlus Customized Treatment Plan.
PRK is an easy 4 step processStep 1
Using the results of your comprehensive eye examination, your doctor will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your prescription, eye anatomy and personal needs. A patient’s corneal thickness plays a role in determining if PRK is a better option than LASIK.
PRK is a common procedure among U.S. Special Forces and is typically recommended for:
At LasikPlus, we take all of these elements into account to provide a vision solution customized to your prescription and unique eye shape.
PRK is an easy 4 step processStep 2
At LasikPlus, the PRK procedure takes less than 15 minutes per eye.
On your procedure day, you should expect to be with us between 90 minutes and 2 hours. This allows adequate time for your registration, preparation, and final eye testing, and gives you an opportunity to relax and enjoy this life-changing experience.
At the conclusion of the PRK treatment, a special contact lens will be placed on the surface of the eye to assist in speeding up the healing process and minimize discomfort. During your 5-day post-operative appointment, your LasikPlus O.D. will carefully remove the contact lens for you and release you to resume full activities.
PRK is an easy 4 step processStep 3
After PRK, the surface of your cornea needs some time to heal. Vision is back immediately but will take around 5 days to stabilize and full realization of results will typically occur in 1-2 weeks.
At LasikPlus, we schedule regular post-operative visits to closely monitor your healing, recovery and vision stabilization. Your treatment day isn’t the end of your PRK journey; it’s a beginning of a new life with sharper images and brighter colors.
PRK is an easy 4 step processStep 4
At LasikPlus, you're family. That’s why we schedule post-operative visits periodically after your treatment.
After your surgeon completes a post-PRK check, you will be given protective glasses to wear and can be driven home. We recommend that you relax and take a nap for several hours while wearing your protective glasses. Be sure not to rub, poke or touch your eyes.
If you experience irritation, use the artificial tears provided by your doctor. You will be given steroid and antibiotic eye drops to assist in the healing process. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions regarding drop schedule!
For the first 24 hours, it is best to avoid straining your eyes through reading, computer work or watching TV. Use this time to rest and relax.
Once the protective contact lens is removed by your LasikPlus O.D., you are free to pursue any hobbies or activities that were part of your normal routine before the PRK procedure.
Continue following your doctor’s recommendations regarding eye drops, and be sure to keep water, soap and shampoo out of your eyes when showering. Most patients see well enough to drive to their follow-up appointment, but if you feel uncomfortable, please ask someone to drive for you.
You may read, use the computer and watch TV, but keep your eyes well lubricated and rest them if they feel strained. Be sure to keep sweat out of your eyes and avoid all lotions, creams and eye makeup for 7 days.
As your cornea heals (typically a 14 day process) you will begin to notice additional clarity in your vision. You’ll have a two week checkup with LasikPlus and we will continue to closely monitor your recovery.
Typically, the doctor will request that you attend a post-operative appointment between one and three months after your PRK treatment takes place. With a clean bill of health, you will be released from care.
Please be sure to attend your annual eye exams and enjoy your improved vision from LasikPlus!
The lasers utilized by LasikPlus have eye-tracking systems that ensure the laser is focused on the proper part of your eye. If you move slightly, the laser will be able to track that movement and remain focused on the right spot on the cornea. If you move, the laser has safety features that will automatically shut it down and reposition the laser where it left off. We take every step necessary to ensure our commitment to your safety is reflected in our customized technology. Learn more.
Yes, LASIK is an eligible FSA expense under IRS guidelines. FSA funds can also be used to pay for prescription medications associated with the procedure.
FSAs offer another financial advantage. Since the money is deducted on a pretax basis, you save an amount equal to the taxes you would have paid on the cash set aside. Learn more.
LASIK is an increasingly common procedure, and finding a LASIK surgeon is perhaps one of the most important parts of your decision-making process. To ensure a safe and effective procedure, it is important to choose a surgeon who is well trained and highly experienced. To choose the best LASIK surgeon, you can use a number of resources including the Web research - article sites such as www.SeeForYourself.com and board sites such as www.abop.org (American Board of Ophthalmology),patient references, and the experiences of your friends and family.
Don’t bank entirely on the cost of LASIK
Some consumers may be enticed to visit a LASIK surgeon based solely on who advertises discounts or lower prices than other surgeons. While the price of the procedure can be a factor when choosing a LASIK surgeon, other important factors should be considered. LASIK is a serious medical procedure that must be performed by a highly skilled surgeon with exceptional training and experience. Choosing a surgeon based only on price alone is gambling with one’s vision. The decision should incorporate the cost of LASIK eye surgery and financing options together with the reputation of the practice, the technology used and the surgeon’s skill and experience.
Review and research the technology
You should pay attention to the technology used by a LASIK surgeon. As new technologies and techniques emerge, LASIK also evolves, providing patients with better results and less discomfort. A surgeon should offer customized lasers and technology for optimal results. Many of these new LASIK technologies provide highly accurate measurements and laser technology for optimum outcomes. To learn more about our customized technology, you can visit websites that specialize in providing consumers useful information about LASIK and the newest and safest laser technology such as www.FDA.gov.
One of the best ways to choose a LASIK eye surgeon is through word-of-mouth. Your friends and family who have had the procedure are often more than happy to recommend a surgeon. These sources may also provide detailed information about a doctor’s personality, the cost of LASIK eye surgery and quality of patient care that a website or advertisement may not offer.
You can also ask your ophthalmologist, optometerist, or eye care professional for a referral to a LASIK surgeon. Doctors who are familiar with their patient’s unique vision correction needs can assist in the process of finding a qualified LASIK surgeon who specializes in a variety of special vision conditions.
To learn more about a particular LASIK surgeon, you can ask the LASIK surgeon for references or ask to consult with their previous patients. References can help you learn more about how well a LASIK surgeon treats patients both medically and personally.
Surf the Web
The Web is a useful and convenient tool that allows consumers to easily research LASIK surgeons. Many doctors have websites that highlight specific details about their practices, including the technology and lasers they use and surgical fees. A LASIK surgeon’s Web page may also outline the surgeon’s education and certifications.
The Web can also be useful for verifying a surgeon’s credentials. Many official ophthalmology organizations, such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology (www.aao.org) and the American Board of Ophthalmology (www.abop.org)have websites that allow consumers to search for officially accredited surgeons in their area.
Consumers can also visit consumer advocacy organizations’ websites. For example, the National Consumers League offers tips on choosing a physician. These groups also specialize in providing public warnings about untrained or unofficially certified LASIK surgeons to prevent medical malpractice.
Some questions to ask a LASIK surgeon may include:
