PRK Long Island

Photorefractive keratectomy, or PRK, is an effective vision correction option for patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or even those with astigmatism. PRK uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea for improved vision. However, no corneal flap is created; instead, the outermost layer of the cornea is loosened and gently brushed aside.

The next step is identical to LASIK. The VISX Star S4 excimer laser, utilizing either iDesign or CustomVue software, is used to reshape the inner layers of the cornea. PRK takes only minutes to perform and the procedure is painless. Most patients are able to return to their daily activities within 48 to 72 hours after PRK, and their vision continues to improve for up to three months.

Depending upon your unique vision and lifestyle, your Stahl Eyecare surgeon will make the best recommendation for your vision correction procedure.
