What is PRK?

PRK is essentially LASIK without the flap. The acronym PRK stands for photorefractive keratectomy. An excimer laser is used to reshape your cornea during PRK. And, as with LASIK, the visual results will be spectacular. The only "downside" is that the visual recovery time of PRK is slightly longer.

Is PRK safer than LASIK?

Millions of people have enjoyed the benefits of LASIK and PRK. PRK is more appropriate for certain types of eyes. PRK can correct irregularities that LASIK cannot correct. Dr. Sura frequently recommends PRK to patients with thinner corneas, irregular scarring, or keratoconus who have already undergone crosslinking.

“PRK is another favorite and successful vision correction surgery. It is better suited to people with a tendency for dry eye or with thin corneas.”

How it works.

A thin layer of the surface of your cornea will be gently removed during PRK. Following that, an excimer laser will reshape your cornea based on specific calculations. Small laser pulses correct any refractive errors in seconds. Each eye is fitted with a protective bandage contact lens to provide extra comfort during the healing process.

How much does PRK Eye Surgery cost?

Your PRK investment with SuraVision is $2800 per eye, or $5600 for both eyes. We are the only Texas practice to publish its real PRK price. Think of it this way: After PRK you’ll “own” your vision instead of “renting” it from the contacts or eye glass industry. When you invest in vision correction you are investing in yourself.

PRK questions? We've got answers.

Does insurance cover PRK?

No. PRK is a vision correction procedure that is very similar to LASIK. One of these similarities is that the procedure is considered elective. You can, however, use your HSA or FSA to pay for the procedure.

Does PRK wear off?

No. PRK uses laser-guided precision to re-shape your cornea permanently and does not wear off. The effects of PRK are long-lasting and our patients report a significant improvement in their vision.

Does PRK hurt?

No. You will be given medication to keep you comfortable during your PRK procedure. The visual recovery time after PRK is slightly longer than that of LASIK.

How long does PRK take?

PRK only takes a few minutes per eye. The corneal epithelium is gently removed with a solution so that the excimer laser can correct any refractive errors.

What if I blink or move during PRK?

There is no cause for concern. Our lasers are built to limit and account for motion. Even if you cough, the laser will stop and resume from where it left off.

Who is a candidate for PRK?

If you have thin corneas and nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, PRK is an excellent procedure. A thorough eye exam is required to determine whether PRK is right for you.

Is PRK a safe alternative to LASIK?

Yes. Both procedures are equally safe and produce stunning visual results. Overall, it is an excellent option for people with thinner corneas, corneal scarring, or keratoconus following cross-linking.

When can I return to work after PRK?

Most of our PRK patients are back to work within 2 days. The vision itself is usually clear within the next day and continues to clear even more over the weeks.

Can I Use My HSA or FSA for PRK?

Yes. PRK is a procedure that is covered by a Health Savings Account or a Flexible Spending Account. You can use your company’s health or flexible spending account to pay for PRK.

Sharp, clear vision is closer than you think. Enjoy more of what life has to offer every minute of the day and night after PRK.
