No Flap PRK
Designed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, PRK is recommended if your cornea is too thin for LASIK or if you have significant dry eye. This procedure utilizes the WaveLight EX500 Excimer Laser System, just like LASIK. However, the treatment does not include creating a corneal flap. Epithelial healing results in a longer visual recovery, more mild discomfort and several months of post-operative eye drops. The results at six months are comparable to those of LASIK treatments.
How It Works
PRK is a great alternative to LASIK when the cornea is too thin. With a slight longer recovery time than LASIK of around 48 to 72 hours, PRK offers the same outcome as LASIK – improved vision without glasses or contacts.
STEP ONE: a soft brush is used to remove the outermost layer of your cornea. STEP TWO: Once the outermost layer of your cornea is removed your eye surgeon will use our high tech excimer laser to reshape the curve of your cornea. STEP THREE: After the cornea has been reshaped a specific contact lens is placed to protect the cornea while your eye heals.

• Strong Cornea – during and after the healing prcess
Who’s A Candidate?
Patients who are in their 20’s, 30’s and sometimes 40’s and are not good candidates for LASIK. In particular those who’s corneas are too thin for LASIK.
Just like LASIK, PRK is a very safe and effective procedure. Dr. Rudd and his team will do whatever is best for your vision and sometimes that means PRK.
