Trans-PRK: Background and details
Trans-PRK stands for “transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy”. This is a follow-up product of LASIK and PRK. Trans-PRK is a very effective alternative treatment option, especially for patients with thin corneas who are not eligible for LASIK. Trans-PRK is best for you if you have been diagnosed with nearsightedness or astigmatism. On the other hand, laser eye surgery with Trans-PRK for farsightedness is only possible with low diopter values. Our doctors will determine your best treatment option individually since every eye is unique.
Trans-PRK uses state-of-the-art laser technology to remove the surface of the cornea, which is why it's also called "No-Touch PRK." After the cornea's top layer has been removed, your vision is corrected using a laser, as the name implies. Trans-PRK is considered a very safe laser eye surgery with just a few side effects. One of the reasons for this is that the epithelium grows back after just three days. Nevertheless, as with any surgery, side effects may occur. Therefore, it's very important that you keep your follow-up appointment after laser eye surgery.
