Arizona PRK Surgery

Many laser eye surgeries can correct different vision problems. Photorefractive Keratectomy surgery does not use a blade when performing the surgery, so there is less damage to the cornea. There is no need to cut a corneal flap, as seen in other laser eye surgeries. Since there is no flap cut, there is less damage that can be cause to this part of the eye. This surgery is considered to be one of the safest laser eye surgeries available to correct the eyes of people who have either nearsightedness or farsightedness with or without astigmatism.

The eye surgeon will determine whether the patient is a good candidate for the PRK surgery in the Arizona area. . The surgery itself may take a bit longer to heal from than other laser surgeries do and there is a bit more discomfort in during the healing process, but the results are far better in patients that have their vision corrected wit PRK surgery. The process of the surgery includes reshaping the cornea with the laser. Many vision problems and disturbances are cause by the cornea being an odd shape. If this is corrected, the vision becomes better. The surgery also includes removal of the epithelium layer of the eye.

Once the surgery is complete, the eye surgeon will put a patch on the eye in the form of a removable contact lens to protect the eye from bacteria and infections. The eye will have discomfort in the days and even weeks after the procedure and this is normal. Once the eye or eyes are healed, the vision should be far better than before. It can take some people up to three months to completely heal from the surgery. The success in healing is determined by the patientís frequent visits to the eye surgeon after the surgery.

This type of surgery is considered to be a lower risk than other laser eye surgeries such as LASIK or LASEK because there are no cuts made in the cornea with a blade. The cost of PRK surgery in Arizona is between $1,300 and $1,500 per eye. This is the average cost in the state. This can depend upon the credentials of the eye doctor who is performing the surgery and if the procedure is in a surgical eye center that is in a large city. There are many variables that can affect the cost of the surgery, and some are due to economics of a local area.
