Custom PRK Surgery
Clearview Vision Institute Is Home To The Most Advanced PRK Technology Available In North America
Often referred to as the original laser eye surgery, Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a vision correction procedure performed with one of the Clearview Institute’s Wavefront Excimer lasers. The lasers resculpt the surface of the cornea, resulting in clearer vision than before.
And what makes Custom PRK different than LASIK eye surgery?
Custom PRK is performed on the surface of the cornea after removing or lifting the corneal epithelium, rather than the corneal flap. It is the right procedure for people with large pupils, thin or structurally unique corneas or individuals involved in contact sports.
It takes longer to heal with Custom PRK than it does with LASIK eye surgery – and vision can be blurry after the procedure while the corneal surface heals. The end result is the same with both techniques.
A simple examination will reveal if you are a candidate for Custom PRK.
