The cornea is the transparent front part of your eye that covers the iris, pupil and anterior chamber and allows light to focus more clearly. If you have a thin cornea, irregularly shaped cornea, chronic dry eyes, or prescriptions, Advanced PRK is an ideal procedure for you.
During Advanced PRK treatment, the laser only touches the surface of the cornea, which reduces the invasiveness of the surgery and preserves the thickness of your cornea. With no incisions made to your eye’s cornea, this surgery is much safer than LASIK and also poses fewer postoperative complications.
Advanced PRK corrects:
This is when you can see things up close clearly, however objects in the distance appear blurred. It’s difficult to drive, play sports and do activities that require distance vision.
If you’re farsighted, objects at a distance are clear, however those close by are hard to see. Reading small print may be challenging and you may experience fatigue, headaches and aching or burning eyes.
With an astigmatism, it’s difficult to see objects close-up and at a far distance. You may experience general eye discomfort and headaches.
