Before LASIK became a popular option for laser eye surgery, PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) was commonly performed to correct poor vision. The procedure is performed with an excimer laser to precisely reshape the cornea of the eye. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can all be corrected through PRK surgery.
In this video, you can learn about the anatomy of the eye and what can prevent the eye from focusing images properly. PRK surgery can be used to reshape the cornea and eliminate or reduce the need for glasses or contacts. Watch the video to learn more.
