Lasik / PRK

The LASIK procedure (also known as laser vision correction or refractive surgery) permanently reshapes the cornea – the outer window of the eye – so that the light focuses more precisely on the retina. LASIK reduces or eliminates conditions like near or farsightedness and astigmatism. The computer-guided Excimer Laser creates extremely accurate, intense pulses of light that vaporize cells, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched.

PRK or Photorefractive keratectomy is also a laser surgery technique used to correct near or farsightedness. With PRK, your eye surgeon takes away the top layer of the cornea, known as the epithelium, and then reshapes any other layers of the cornea to fix any irregular curvature.
