Consulting with Your Refractive Keratectomy Surgeon

Refractive keratectomy, also known as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), is the original technique used for laser eye surgery. It involves removing the corneal epithelium, the cornea's outer layer of tissue, and using an excimer laser to correct structural deficiencies with your eye.

Unlike LASIK, refractive keratectomy surgery does not require us to make a corneal slit. This makes it the ideal procedure for people with a higher risk of experiencing complications during LASIK surgery due to thin or irregularly shaped corneas. PRK is also the safer option if you have already had a radial keratotomy or glaucoma surgery. Other reasons to choose refractive keratectomy over LASIK surgery include having:
 

 Retinal Tears  Very Large Pupils  Certain Corneal Dystrophies

 A History of Physical Trauma (Boxers, Football Players)
