PRK Eye Surgery Procedure in New York City and Long Island

In the LASIK procedure, a portion of the cornea is lifted away from the eye and the tissue beneath it is altered. Because the unaltered corneal tissue is replaced over the altered cornea (acting like a natural bandage), healing is much faster after LASIK. However, PRK is more effective in certain situations.

When is PRK More Effective Than LASIK?

  • When the corneas are thin 
  • When the corneas are oddly shaped 
  • When the cornea is steep in contour
  • When the patient suffers from lazy eye (amblyopia)

When You Can Expect Results

Full vision correction with PRK can take several weeks to become apparent. Like LASIK, many people who undergo PRK achieve vision of 20/20 or better. The results you can expect will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.

“I’ve been going to Kelly Vision Center for the past couple of years just for my annual vision checks, and I finally decided to move forward with getting my vision corrected. It was the best decision ever! The staff are so friendly and attentive, and they made my entire experience comfortable. I had PRK done, and they explained the procedure step-by-step and informed me of all the things I would experience post-op. It’s been a little over a month, and I can now see 20/15 clearly. I absolutely recommend their services!”
