PRK

PRK is a laser vision correction procedure performed by Dr Brian in the Beverly Hills area at his office in Beverly Hills. The procedure involves gently moving the surface skin of the cornea and applying the laser to reshape the outer cornea.


PRK does not require the creation of a flap; a solution is applied to the eye and the laser is applied to the surface of the cornea after to reshape it. The surface skin heals over the treated area. The visual results of PRK are similar to LASIK however, vision is typically slower to recover. This 5-10 minute procedure can treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.  Potential benefit is improved vision and potential risks are infection, inflammation, and haze, among others.  That is the reason Dr. Brian and every staff member here are  all highly "detail-oriented" about every step of the process for every patient.

15 year old PRK is very different than modern PRK.  Specialized drops and contact lenses are used so they are not typically painful nowadays the way "old style" PRK was a decade ago.

EVALUATIONS POTENTIAL BENEFIT to PATIENT
Preferred for patients who are very apprehensive about LASIK Less involved than LASIK
Preferred for patients with thin cornea thickness Less depth of laser treatment than LASIK
Preferred for patients with previous RK (radial keratotomy) Minimizes invasiveness for laser correction
