PRK – the classic laser eye method: Studies prove effectiveness
Different types of laser eye techniques are differentiated – photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and newer methods such as ReLEx Smile or LASIK. In the PRK eye laser method, the epithelial layer of the cornea is removed with the aid of a laser. This not only corrects corneal curvatures (astigmatism) up to 5 dioptres, but also counteracts myopia down to -6 dioptres and hyperopia up to +4 dioptres. These values vary from country to country, and the final result is also strongly related to the corneal thickness of the patient.
By removing the tissue, the light rays incident on the cornea are refracted in such a way that they are focused in a focal point on the retina that the ametropia is permanently corrected. Since the PRK eye laser method has existed since the 1980s, there are now numerous studies that confirm the efficiency and long-term success of this technique.
Procedure of the PRK eye laser method
At the beginning of a laser surgery with PRK technique, the eye is extensively examined by our team of doctors in Antalya. These include determining the thickness and topography of the cornea in order to identify possible curvatures and deformations, measuring the pupil and intraocular pressure and validating the correction value of the refraction of light in the eye.
Once this has been done, the covering skin in the eye is removed with a special surgical knife and the cornea is exposed. The surface of the cornea is then removed using an excimer laser until the previously calculated value is reached. In a final step, a contact lens is inserted into the eye, where it serves as protection until the epithelium has grown again. This usually takes a few days and can occasionally cause pain, as after every operation.
In general, laser eye surgery is carried out on an outpatient basis at and in Turkey, allowing the patient to leave our clinic in Antalya on the same day. Shortly after the procedure you will be able to see the first results with your own eyes and the final result will be permanent within a few days.
