Understanding Transepithelial PRK Surgery

A. What is Transepithelial PRK (Transepi-PRK) Laser Eye Surgery?

Transepithelial PRK is a ground breaking laser eye surgery that involves a single-step “no-touch” process. This innovative procedure not only removes the epithelial layer of the cornea but also precisely changes its shape. The result in less pain compared to traditional methods like LASEK, coupled with enhanced precision and faster recovery for the patient’s eyesight.

B. How Does Transepithelial PRK Work?

Unlike other laser eye surgeries, Transepithelial PRK employs a unique approach. It completely removes the front epithelial cell layer of the cornea without using alcohol before the excimer laser ablation thus reducing alcohol related irritation. This latest one-stop Transepithelial treatment streamlines this process, automatically removing the epithelial layer before laser ablation, ensuring a quicker recovery.

Advantages of Transepithelial PRK Surgery

A. Versatility in Vision Correction

Transepi-PRK is an advanced surface treatment that effectively corrects various vision issues, including short-sightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Its versatility makes it a preferred choice for individuals with different refractive errors.

B. Ideal for Thin Corneas

For individuals with thin corneas, traditional laser eye surgeries might pose challenges. Transepithelial PRK, however, offers a viable solution, providing effective vision correction without compromising safety.

C. Addressing Corneal Scars

Corneal scars can be a contraindication for other conventional laser surgeries and this can significantly impact vision. Transepithelial PRK proves to be a useful option in addressing such cases, offering a ray of hope for those with corneal irregularities.

Even for individuals requiring minimal vision correction, Transepithelial PRK stands out as a suitable choice. This procedure caters to a wide range of correction levels, ensuring personalized treatment for every patient.
