Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a form of laser eye surgery in which the surface of the cornea is reshaped without the formation of a flap (in contrast to LASIK). PRK is also known as ‘LASEK’ or ‘surface treatment’.

This technique can be used for people for whom LASIK may not be appropriate.

It does take slightly longer for the eye to recover but the vision is as good as LASIK after a month or two.
There are some very good reasons why somebody may do better with surface treatment rather than with LASIK.

While we do not currently undertake Laser eye surgery we would be happy to offer a free consultation to assess suitability and then recommed suitable experienced surgeons for treatment if appropriate.
