Advanced Surface Ablation/PRK is performed by our fellowship trained surgeons, Dr. Erik D. Skoog and Dr. Nicole K. Brandt, to correct Myopia and Astigmatism. The decision to have Advanced Surface Ablation/PRK or iLASIK is an important one that, ultimately only you and your surgeon can make. It is important that patients have realistic expectations and that your decision is based on facts, not hopes or misconceptions. The goal with Advanced Surface Ablation/PRK is to reduce your dependence on corrective lenses. Our Corneal Specialists offer complimentary consultations to review your lens prescription, health of the eye, and to discuss risks, complications, and benefits.
The traditional LASIK process that creates a flap with a microkeratome is still being used throughout the country however at Spokane Eye Clinic we offer Advanced Surface Ablation/PRK because we firmly believe they are better options.
Advanced Surface Ablation/PRK is also excellent option to improve vision and reduce dependence on corrective lenses. It can work especially well for those individuals who might not be a good candidate for iLASIK, have a weakened cornea, or have dry eye issues. The procedure takes only minutes to perform although the healing and recovery time is slower than with iLASIK but the results are extremely comparable.
Our surgeons work for the Spokane Eye Clinic full-time and reside locally on the rare chance you encounter any post operative problems or have any concerns following the procedure.
