PRK

PRK is similar to LASIK eye surgery, in that the same type of laser is used, however a corneal flap is not created. Instead, the laser beam is then applied directly to the surface of the eye to reshape the cornea. PRK is less frequently used because of the development of LASIK, but in some individual cases, PRK may still be the procedure of choice. Even though the initial healing may take several days longer than that of LASIK, the long term effects are the same.
