As laser eye surgery must be tailored to each patient’s prescription with complete accuracy, the team at My iClinic use precise algorithms to program a laser to help you see clearly without glasses or contacts.
Although almost identical procedures, LASEK & PRK only differ in the way the highest layer of the cornea is removed. In LASEK surgery, the top layer of cells are simply moved to one side and replaced after surgery, whereas the PRK surgery removes them completely. This is done using a dilute alcohol solution.
Both procedures then use a laser to reshape the tissue on the surface of the eye to achieve clear vision. Once this is complete, you will need to wear a protective bandage lens for five days until the healing process is complete.
