What is PRK?

In an eye with perfect vision, light rays pass through the pupil and are focused by the corneal lens so that they fall precisely on the center of the retina. Unfortunately, there are a number of eye conditions that can interfere with the way your lens focuses light.

This video takes a closer look at PRK laser eye surgery. PRK, also known as photorefractive keratotomy, is a non-intrusive procedure designed to flatten all or part of the corneal lens so that the focal point falls more closely on your retina. Learn how PRK can reduce or eliminate the need for prescription glasses and contact lenses in this full clip.
