Florida PRK Surgery

There are many types of laser surgeries that one can get to correct their vision. PRK surgery, also known as photorefractive keratectomy is a surgery that reshapes the cornea so that the light can refract better from this part of the eye resulting in corrected vision. Many people who are tired of wearing their corrective glasses or contact lenses opt for corrective eye surgery. This particular procedure works well for patients who have either nearsightedness or farsightedness whether they have astigmatism or not. The healing process takes a bit longer than with some of the other surgeries on the eyes, but the results are usually much better than the other surgeries.

Before a person has PRK surgery in Florida, the doctor will determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for this procedure. The eye doctor will do an examination that includes measurements of the eye and shape of the eye. After a full examination, the doctor will determine if the patients will benefit from this procedure. This doctor will normally provide information on how the patient should prepare for the procedure. This can include not wearing contacts for three weeks before the procedure.

The cost of PRK surgery in Florida is usually falls around $1,300 - $1,500 per eye. This can vary according to the area of Florida that the procedure is performed, the surgeonís expertise, experience and practice. Some specialized eye surgeons charge more due to their extensive credentials. Certain larger cities have higher prices for these types of surgeries when compared to smaller rural areas. The procedure can take place in a surgical eye center or an eye doctorís office. This is a common outpatient procedure that takes about 15 minutes to complete per eye. Normally a patient will have only one eye done at a time, because of the healing that needs to take place.

The doctor will put a numbing eye drop in the eye before he begins working on the eye. This takes about ten minutes to take effect. The laser reshaping only takes about one to two minutes to complete. Most of the work that is done is preparatory, and the actual procedure does not take long at all. After the doctor completes the procedure, he will place a special bandage over the eye to protect the cornea until the eye can heal. This bandage is in the form of a contact lens. This is removed when the healing begins to take place within days of the surgery.
