While standard PRK has been a revolution in vision correction, LASIK MD also offers the latest in laser vision correction technology: Advanced Custom Wavefront PRK. Custom Wavefront PRK is a procedure that enables your surgeon to further customize the standard PRK procedure to your individual eyes.
If you have a higher prescription, thin corneas or larger-than-average pupils, then Custom Wavefront PRK is probably the procedure that is best suited for your eyes and needs.
For standard PRK patients, you are also eligible for this latest technology for laser vision correction.
Custom Wavefront PRK advantages
Custom Wavefront PRK allows for the correction of more patients, including those with higher prescriptions, and even those who may have been deemed non-candidates in the past.
This advanced technology can, in many cases, improve the quality of both day and night vision compared to standard treatments. The laser is capable of treating people with larger pupils and is better for night time vision quality. It also minimizes the risk of night time glare and haloes. Custom Wavefront PRK results in a corneal shape that is closer to the normal curvature of the natural eye, providing better quality for both day and night vision.
Custom Wavefront PRK removes 20%-30% less corneal tissue, which is healthier and safer for the eye. Custom Wavefront PRK is also particularly beneficial for patients with thinner than average corneas, larger pupils and higher prescriptions.
