PRK at Takle Eye

It can become harder to see as clearly as before with age. Having to constantly update your glasses prescriptions and contact lenses can prove to be even more of an inconvenience. These adjustments to your lifestyle may be the result of refractive errors in the eyes, which means that the shape of your eyes prevents light from properly focusing on your retina.

At Takle Eye Group, refractive errors are the most common type of vision problems our ophthalmologists encounter. That is why we specialize in a variety of innovative laser eye surgeries meant to restore vision based on your eye condition. Photorefractive Keratectomy, or PRK, is one of the most popular and safe laser surgeries we conduct.

What is Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)?

PRK surgery is designed to reshape the surface of your eye’s cornea to restore your vision. After carefully removing the surface cells of the cornea, our ophthalmologists will use our state-of-the-art excimer laser to carefully adjust its shape, resulting in crystal-clear vision. In addition to restored sight, PRK can treat many common eye problems, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and blurred vision (astigmatism).

Do I Qualify for PRK?

Like many of our patients, you might be wondering whether a PRK laser eye surgery is better than a LASIK eye surgery. In general, Takle Eye recommends PRK as the better option for patients with thinner or irregularly shaped corneas, if they have pre-existing chronic dry eyes, or if they engage in activity with close contact to the eyes. Our experienced team of surgeons and ophthalmologists are ready to discuss any vision impairment problems you may have. If you have concerns about next steps, it is our focus at Takle Eye to work with you in developing a customized treatment plan.

The PRK Eye Surgery Procedure

The PRK laser eye surgery is a fast and painless procedure that takes about 10 minutes, with 2-3 minutes per eye. After an eye drop anesthesia and medication is applied, our surgeon will begin removing surface cells from your cornea. Then, they will use our practice’s latest excimer lasers to alter the shape of your corneas and remove any refractive errors. Once the surgery is over, healing medication and a bandage will be applied to quicken the recovery process.

Upon surgery completion, follow-up appointments will be conducted to ensure your eyes are healing properly. From there, you can enjoy permanent results in vision improvements and better quality of life.
