PRK

PRK Laser Eye Surgery

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) procedures, more commonly referred to as PRK Laser Eye Surgeries, are a simple and effective means of treating patients diagnosed with astigmatism, as well as helping to restore the vision of individuals who struggle with nearsightedness (myopia) or farsightedness (hyperopia).

PRK Laser Eye Surgery was the first and most groundbreaking corrective vision procedure to be introduced into the medical field, and paved the way for all of the restorative laser eye surgery services offered at Monson Vision. Without PRK, there would not be LASIK eye surgery or even SmILE laser vision correction.

The Process of PRK Laser Eye Surgery

As an affordable, minimally-invasive procedure with a quick recovery, PRK laser eye surgery aims to reshape a patient’s cornea using excimer laser technology. The laser procedure removes between five and ten percent of the patient’s cornea, which is only about the thickness of two strands of hair. In just a few moments, the procedure is complete thanks to the highly skilled techniques of the eye surgeons at Monson Vision and their use of cutting-edge tools and technologies. For patients in Cache, Davis, or Weber County, UT, or Bannock County & Idaho Falls, ID; PRK is a quick and affordable means of restoring impaired vision due to astigmatism, as well as near and farsightedness.

Are You a Candidate For PRK Surgery?

For some patients, LASIK eye surgery may not be the best procedure to correct impaired vision. Whether it’s because their corneas are too thin, or they’ve already previously undergone LASIK; with PRK laser eye surgery, there is a reduced risk of having too much of the patient’s cornea removed by the laser equipment. Additionally, patients who have severe myopia are encouraged to undergo PRK rather than attempt a LASIK procedure to correct their vision. Talk with our eye doctors today to see if your vision can improve with the help of PRK surgery at Monson Vision.
