The Trans-PRK method is a unique touchless laser method for vision correction.
The abbreviation Trans-PRK means Trans-epithelial PhotoRefractive Keratectomy. Corneal epithelium and diopter correction occur in the first part of the procedure, when the surgeon uses a high precision excimer laser. In the past PRK was the standard laser treatment for eyes, which was replaced by the LASIK method because it was less painful. However, the LASIK technique disappointed patients who had thick or irregular corneas. The modern approach of Trans-PRK contributed to the optimizing of the procedure in the most important point. This relates almost exclusively to patients who are near sighted or have astigmatism. If hyperopia occurs, the treatment method of Trans-PRK may be performed successfully only when the diopter number is low.
