What is PRK?
PRK is essentially LASIK without a flap. PRK is the acronym for photorefractive keratectomy. During PRK an excimer laser is used to reshape your cornea. And like LASIK, you will enjoy phenomenal visual results. The only trade-off with LASIK is the visual recovery of PRK is slightly longer.

Is PRK safer than LASIK?
Both procedures are safe. PRK is better suited for certain types of eyes. PRK can correct irregularities that cannot be addressed by LASIK. Dr. Aaron Waite, often recommends PRK to patients who have thinner corneas, irregular scarring, or keratoconus and have already had crosslinking performed.

PRK questions? We've got answers.
Does insurance cover PRK?
No. PRK is a vision correction procedure that has a lot in common with LASIK. One of those commonalities is being considered an elective procedure. However, you are able to use your HSA or FSA for the procedure.
Does PRK wear off?
No. If you are age 47 or older, your eyes might change as a result of aging. This occurs whether you’ve had PRK or not. If you are around this age, Dr. Waite will take that into consideration when determining the best vision correction options for you.
Does PRK hurt?
No. You will not feel discomfort during your PRK procedure. We’ll take care to ensure you’re feeling relaxed and comfortable. The visual recovery after PRK takes slightly longer than LASIK.
How long does PRK take?
What if I blink or move during PRK?
There is no need to be concerned. Our lasers are designed to limit and account for movements. Even if you were to cough, the laser will pause and resume exactly where it left off.
Who is a candidate for PRK?
Is PRK a safe alternative to LASIK?
Yes. Both procedures are safe and allow you to achieve incredible visual results. Overall, it is a great alternative for people with thinner corneas, corneal scarring or keratoconus after crosslinking.
