Customized Results from Your Refractive Keratectomy Surgeon

It is normal to feel nervous about surgery, but at our practice, we do everything in our power to put your mind at ease. To alleviate potential fears, we explain every step of the process for refractive keratectomy surgery so you know exactly what to expect.

We will also perform a thorough optical examination using advanced diagnostic equipment. This allows us to customize the surgery to your specific condition, thereby minimizing the risk of complications and maximizing the level of visual improvement.

During the examination, our doctor measures the thickness of your cornea and its refractive index. We then map your cornea using a diagnostic analyzer, giving us an accurate, digital representation of the shape of your cornea. After the evaluation, we will schedule a date for refractive keratectomy surgery and explain any measures you need to take in preparation.

What to Expect after Surgery

The main advantage LASIK has over refractive keratectomy surgery, also known as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), is that it offers a shorter recovery time. For the first one to three days after PRK surgery, you may experience symptoms such as swollen eyelids, eye irritation, and light sensitivity. Some patients report no symptoms or discomfort of any kind.

Within a week, you will be able to remove the protective lens we placed over your eye to allow the outer tissue of your cornea to heal. At this point, you should notice a definite improvement in your vision. As your new vision stabilizes, it will continue to improve for one to three months until it reaches optimal visual acuity. Please remember that every patient's recovery time is different. Your refractive keratectomy surgeon will be able to give you more accurate information on what you can expect during the recovery period.
