New York PRK Surgery

Laser surgeries make it possible for people with vision problems to correct these problems so they do not need to wear glasses or contacts. PRK surgery, also known as photorefractive keratectomy, is a type of laser surgery used to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness or farsightedness whether they are accompanied by astigmatism or not. This vision correction procedure uses a cool beam laser light to penetrate the cornea without using a metal blade. This is what makes this surgery so unique compared to other laser surgeries. During the procedure, the cornea is shaved on the top to correct the shape.

People who have vision problems such as nearsightedness or farsightedness can be due to the shape of their cornea. If this shape is corrected, light can refract properly into the retina so a person can see with good vision. There are many people that have perfect or close to perfect vision after having PRK surgery done. In New York, these types of surgeries are typically done in a surgical eye center or an eye doctorís office. Some people who cannot have LASIK surgery, due to their cornea being too thin, can have PRK surgery to correct their vision problems.

The cost of PRK surgery in New York can average $1,500 per eye and up to correct a personís vision. This price can vary according to the types of vision correction that the patient needs. A prominent eye doctor with excellent credentials and many years of experience may charge a higher price than an eye doctor who is just starting out in his profession. Other factors that may influence the price can be where the eye doctor or surgery center is located. Big cities such as New York City are usually higher in price than smaller cities.

During the procedure the eye doctor will administer eye drops that will numb the eye. This will take about ten minutes to take effect. Once the eye is numb the doctor will begin the surgery. The laser will be pointed directly at the cornea and the doctor will look through special microscope through the eye. This type of laser is highly accurate and very successful at correcting the shape of the cornea. The epithelium layer of the eye is removed using an alcohol solution. A patch is put on the cornea in the form of a contact lens. Most patients will heal in one to three months. It can take up to a year to see the full benefit of the corrected vision.
