PRK laser eye surgery, or Photorefractive Keratectomy is part of a family of procedures called “surface ablations” because the laser is applied directly on the surface of the cornea rather than under a flap, as with LASIK. Diamond Vision uses a rotating brush (Amoils Brush) to gently and safely remove the surface cells in the treatment zone in just about 10 seconds!
Advantages of PRK surgery:
You keep more corneal tissue than with LASIK, ensuring the long-term stability and integrity of your eyes.
You are also better able to have a “touch up” procedure if necessary
There is no risk of flap-related complications.
You are at less risk for dry eyes, because there is no disruption in the nerves that tell your eyes to produce tears.
PRK is more comfortable during the procedure.
