Before the PRK laser surgery, we will explain the procedure step-by-step because it is important for you to know the details.
The ophthalmologist removes the external membrane of the cornea (epithelium) with a surgery micro-instrument. The computer-oriented Laser beam then vaporizes small amounts of tissue in the cornea. He removes only enough tissue to modify the shape of the cornea so as to correct the sight. The recovery process lasts approximately a week. During five days, the patient will wear therapeutic lenses.
