SEE CLEARLY WITHOUT GLASSES
Laser Vision Correction is the process of reshaping the cornea to correct:
These conditions affect how well you see by preventing light from focusing properly on your retina, making images blurry.
During LASIK surgery, a flap is created on the cornea. Then using a laser the cornea is reshaped to allow light entering your pupil to focus correctly on your retina. LASIK surgery is a short procedure that takes approximately 3-5 minutes for each eye. There is little discomfort associated with LASIK surgery, and most see results that same day.
PRK is an advanced type of corneal ablation. PRK surgery is similar to LASEK in that it is used for patients who have thin corneas and might otherwise not be good candidates for regular LASIK. In PRK Surgery, no alcohol solution is used. Instead, a specially designed microkeratome instrument, similar to what is used to create the regular Lasik flap, is used to gently separate the epithelium from the underlying Bowman’s Membrane. Once the Epithelium layer has been removed, the laser is then applied and reshapes the cornea to correct the prescription. After your PRK surgery, a bandage contact lens is applied. This lens helps with the healing process and provides comfort
Three to four days after your PRK surgery, the doctor may remove the contact lens. Your vision will probably not be perfect immediately. Every patient heals at a different pace. It can take up to 6 months to reach your final result. After PRK surgery, it is very important to follow Dr. Krassin's post-op and drop regimen exactly to achieve the highest quality of vision.
