Firstly, let us welcome you to our TransPRK website!
Our team and I have worked together to provide you with the most up-to-date and reliable information on TransPRK from various websites and other readings. TransPRK is the latest development in laser refractive surgery on the cornea. This is an all-laser technique for treating short-sightedness (myopia), astigmatism and youthful long-sightedness (hyperopia).
This method of treating refractive errors is gaining popularity because of its elegance and simplicity. Treatment is done without touching the cornea and the accuracy of treatment is excellent. It requires no flap creation and therefore, avoids all the complications related to the flap and is superior to Epi-LASIK because there is no blade necessary to remove the superficial surface layer of the cornea (epithelium). The epithelium is gently vaporized by the laser and only the minimal amount of corneal tissue is removed, leaving the cornea stronger than with other procedures.development in laser refractive surgery on the cornea. This is an all-laser technique for treating short-sightedness (myopia), astigmatism and youthful long-sightedness (hyperopia).
TransPRK is a no touch, no blade technique has all the benefits of Epi-LASIK with none of the risks. This is ideal for active sportsmen and people working in jobs that have high risk of injury to the eye.
By reading our website, we hope you learn more about TransPRK and whether it is suitable for you!
