The PRK method for corneas without scars
With this method, a computer-operated laser beam is used to precisely flatten a predetermined area of the sensitive cornea (for nearsightedness). The cuts for the treatment are so small they are measured in thousandths of microns and the surface of the cornea is changed without leaving a scar and without affecting the tissue under it. This way, those with nearsightedness, astigmatism and farsightedness regain their normal optical refractive power. Furthermore, the PRK method facilitates "rubbing out" scars and cloudiness on the cornea that often result from mechanical injuries or infections (such as herpes).
The eye surgery also has a therapeutic effect, is painless, only takes a few minutes and is an outpatient procedure that is performed with anaesthetic eye drops.
