PRK – Photorefractive Keratectomy

Prior to LASIK, PRK was the most commonly performed laser vision correction surgery. This procedure also utilizes the excimer laser to reshape the curvature of the cornea and correct nearsightedness, farsightedness & astigmatism. PRK is useful in patients with thin corneas. Again, the excimer laser is used in the treatment of corneal opacity, corneal scars & superficial corneal dystrophy.

Lasek – Laser Epithelial Keratomileusis

In this Procedure, the epithelial flap in first lifted with an epikeratome and after administering the laser, the flap is rolled back to normal position. Patients with thin corneas are advised this procedure.

This Procedure is ideal to correct high degrees of nearsightedness (Myopia) and farsightedness (Hyperopia). Toric phakic IOL is the latest development in correcting cylindrical powers along with high spherical power of the eye.

Refractive lens exchange (RLE)

In this procedure the clear lens is removed from the artificial lens is implanted in its place. This lens has-in Refractive power and is specifically implanted to meet the patient’s visual needs RLE is useful in treating high degree of nearsightedness & farsightedness.
