PRK Surgery Package

PRK or LASEK is an outpatient surgical procedure that is performed to correct hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism. This method is one of the most appropriate and fastest ways to correct eye refractive errors (a way to remove eyeglasses and contact lenses).

Age Limit for PRK Surgery
  • You Should be older than 18 years.
Surgical Procedure

PRK surgery is performed to correct mild to severe myopia, mild to moderate hyperopia, and astigmatism. Because in PRK surgery no corneal flap is created, it is recommended for patients with thin cornea or for people who are engaged in activities that put them at risk for eye injuries (and potentially, corneal flap dislocations) after surgery.

Post-Operative Care

- Your first post-operative visit should be scheduled 24 hours after surgery.
- You should see your ophthalmologist at regular intervals for the first six months.
- At your first post-operative visit, your surgeon will test your vision, and examine your eyes.
- Avoid wearing contact lenses for at least the first three months.
- Avoid wearing eye make-up and applying lotions or creams around your eyes for at least the first three days or till your surgeon gives you permission.
- Avoid certain contact sports, such as boxing, football, karate, etc. for at least 10 weeks.
- Avoid rubbing and scratching your eyes in the first few weeks after surgery.
 - In the first few months after surgery, you may experience minor fluctuations in your quality of vision. The complete recovery and stabilizing your vision may take 3-6 months, during this period you may also experience some complications such as night driving difficulties, and seeing halos or glare in your field of vision.
- If further correction or enhancement is necessary, you should wait until your eye measurements are consistent for two consecutive visits at least 3 months apart before re-operation.
