LASIK (Laser in-situ Keratomileusis) and PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) use a laser to reshape the cornea (the clear, front part of the eye) so it can better focus light onto the retina. The method they accomplish this differs between them. PRK applies the laser through all the frontmost layers of the cornea while LASIK first creates a flap that is lifted out of the way of the laser and then put back into place afterwards. 

     Here is an overview of the process but it’s important to know the specifics of your surgical plan may vary.    


     We take all the measurements we need for any vision correction procedure at your consultation. It’s important to stay out of soft contact lenses for at least five (5) days and three (3) weeks for rigid contact lenses. If you have special contact lenses, let us know when you schedule your consultation. We can operate on the same day as your consultation with proper planning. 


     We take great care to make sure there is no discomfort at any point of the procedure. For LASIK, the first step is creating the flap. We then move to another machine that has both the LASIK and PRK lasers. The procedure typically takes under 5 minutes. 


     After the procedure, you will have drops to take and will need to take it easy for a week and avoid rubbing or touching your eyes. There may be slight discomfort, worse with PRK, that will improve over the following week. Visual recovery is typically fast. We will need to see you one day, one week, and one month after the procedure.
