It has been proven to be extremely successful reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses.

PRK is a surface procedure performed on an outpatient basis. After the procedure a protective contact lens bandage is placed on the eye to make it more comfortable during healing. It typically takes three to five days to fully heal. Most patients notice an improvement in their vision soon after surgery. However truly clear vision takes several weeks. Most patients should prepare for 5 days of little activity after surgery to recover satisfactory vision for most occupations.
