PRK Eye Surgery in Oklahoma City
What Is PRK?
PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy, is similar to the refractive surgery LASIK. With PRK, the cornea is reshaped using a cool-beam excimer laser, but there is no flap created as with LASIK. When there is not a flap present, healing and vision take a little longer to recover. Patients report more scratchiness with PRK compared to LASIK patients. PRK is indicated to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.
Am I a Good Candidate for PRK?
You must be over the age of 18 and your eyes need to be in good health. Some patients who have been told they are not a candidate for LASIK may be able to have PRK. PRK is a great option for patients with thin corneas or large pupils, or someone who does not wish to have a flap created during surgery. We offer a free consultation with Dr. Hummel to determine if PRK is right for you.
How Much Does PRK Cost?
PRK surgery costs vary based on the type of laser technology that the surgeon recommends for you. During your free consultation with Dr. Hummel, all options and costs will be discussed. We partner with CareCredit and Wells Fargo for easy financing options.
