Hawaii PRK Surgery

Having PRK surgery in Hawaii can help a person to obtain vision correction. This is good for someone who may be tired of the hassle of wearing glasses or contact lenses can cause. This vision correction is not for everyone, so the eye doctor determines if a patient is a good candidate for this type of laser eye surgery. Once the patient has had an evaluation and had their eye physically examined by an eye doctor, they would be given instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. It is quite common for the eye doctor to request that the patient not wear certain types of contacts for three weeks before the surgery. This will help to achieve optimum results.

PRK surgery is a common procedure that many eye doctors can perform. It is a less risky procedure than some of the other surgeries because it does not use a metal blade to cut through the eye to get to the cornea. Many people who have vision problems such as being nearsighted or farsighted have a misshaped cornea. In laser surgery the shape of the cornea is changed so that the light will refract properly from this part of the eye allowing for vision correction to occur.

The average cost of PRK surgery in Hawaii range from $1,800 to $2,500 per eye. The cost of PRK surgery in Hawaii is a bit higher than other areas. The cost of living is also much higher in this area so this is relative to the cost. The procedure is performed by a trained eye doctor, but a surgeon with a high level of expertise may charge more for the same surgery. The type of facility that the surgery is performed in may also affect the price. Surgical centers tend to be a little higher than an eye doctor’s office.

During the surgery the eye doctor will numb the eye with drops so the patient will not feel the surgery as it is performed. Patients do not typically require general anesthesia for this type of procedure. It is done on an outpatient basis. Since PRK surgery in Hawaii is considered to be an elective surgery, most insurance companies will not cover the costs. Most surgical centers off financial payment arrangements that allow the patient to make monthly payments until the total sum is paid off. This can help to make the cost more affordable for people.
