Laser Guided PRK at Solomon Eye Associates, Physicians & Surgeons

The PRK procedure was developed before LASIK, and it has helped millions of people worldwide achieve 20/20 vision or better. After the introduction of LASIK, the PRK procedure has generally been reserved for eyes with inadequate corneal thickness. This is because the PRK procedure does not involve the creation of a corneal flap. Instead, the laser energy is applied directly onto the eye's cornea. Another group of patients for whom PRK might be more appropriate than LASIK are individuals who are at risk for flap-related complications and eye injuries, such as athletes and combat personnel.
