Arkansas PRK Surgery

Many people have had successful PRK surgery in Arkansas. This type of surgery is beneficial to people who need correction with either nearsightedness or farsightedness with or without astigmatism. Photorefractive Keratectomy works by using a laser to penetrate through the layers of the eye to reach and reshape the cornea without making any cuts with a blade. This minimizes potential harm to the cornea flap that is cut with some of the other laser eye surgeries. The outcome for the PRK surgery has been much better than other surgeries using a laser. Many eye doctors prefer this procedure over others for patients who are good candidates.

PRK surgery in Arkansas can cost an average of $1,200 per eye and up. The cost really depends on many factors such as the location of the surgical eye center or doctor’s office where the surgery will take place. Other factors that can affect the price of this surgery include the vision issues that need to be corrected. The surgical experience that a doctor has will come into play most often when price id determined. Many surgeons who have built a solid reputation will have prices that reflect this.

During the consultation with the doctor, prior to the surgery, the patient will be examined with tools t that can measure their vision and see into their eye. At this time the doctor will determine what type of surgery will be required. If the doctor recommends PRK surgery, he will provide preparation that the patient will need in order for the surgery to have the highest amount of success. The eye surgeon typically requires that most contacts not be worn for three weeks before the procedure will take place. Some contacts require a longer time frame of not wearing them before the surgery.

The patient will arrive to the surgery center on the day of the surgery. They will need someone who can drive them home because it is not safe to drive right after this type of procedure is done. A topical anesthesia will be used to number the eye before the surgery. This can take about ten minutes to take effect. The surgery is completed within minutes. The preparation before the laser reshapes the eye is what takes the majority of the time. After the PRK surgery the patient will typically have many follow up appointments to monitor the healing process and ensure that there are no complications.
