Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) was the first FDA-approved laser eye surgery. For patients with dry eyes or unusual curvature of the cornea, PRK offers a good laser surgery option. In this video you can learn step-by-step how PRK laser eye surgery is performed.
First, the outside of the cornea is lifted away, providing room for the excimer laser to reshape the corneal tissue beneath. Once the cornea has been effectively altered, a contact lens is inserted to facilitate healing.
