LASEK & PRK

Man with glassesThere are many different types of laser vision correction and depending on the severity or condition of your eyes, LASIK eye surgery may not be the best solution.

Often, if an individual has a corneal distortion, PRK or LASEK may be a more beneficial procedure than LASIK. The PRK procedure was in fact the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction and is the predecessor to the popular LASIK procedure everyone has come to know. Like the LASIK procedure, PRK and LASEK reshape the cornea to correct one’s vision by using an excimer laser. The procedures differ in the preparation of the cornea prior to the excimer laser treatment. PRK and LASEK are often an optimal approach for a number of reasons.
