Trans PRK vs Lasik eye surgery
Measurement’s are taken of your eyes during your initial free consultation.
The measurements taken with the wavefront analyzer are used to guide the laser to perform your treatment.
Trans PRK does not alter the wavefront pattern measurements as it is applied directly to the eye.
With Lasik, a flap is cut and lifted. The cornea is altered but can not be measured during surgery. This can affect the visual outcome.
Our surgeons choose Trans PRK due to the accuracy and safety of the procedure.
We can offer a wide variety of treatment options based on your eyes need:
- Vision correction by excimer laser
- Visian ICL ( Intra ocular contact lens)
- Refractive lens exchange
- Presbyopic correction
- Astigmatism correction by TORIC IOL implant and LRIs
