Experience the Life-changing Benefits of PRK Surgery
Patients who do not qualify for LASIK procedures, but still want to improve their vision, often can with PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy. TLC Yonge Eglinton Laser Eye Centers can perform this surgery, as well as explain the PRK benefits at their Waterloo, Mississauga, London, or Toronto, Ontario, offices. PRK surgery has changed both the vision and lives of thousands of patients, and with a success rate of 95 percent, you can look forward to revitalized vision.
Enhanced Clarity of Vision
If you struggle with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, and you desire clearer vision, you are a great candidate for PRK surgery. Photorefractive keratectomy is a highly advanced laser vision correction technique that uses an excimer laser to refine the shape of the cornea. By strategically reshaping the surface of the cornea, light can properly reflect off the retina, enhancing your clarity of vision.
Fewer Headaches, More Productivity
One of the most common complaints that we hear from patients who suffer from myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism is that they often experience headaches. Eye conditions are notorious for causing headaches with a dull, lasting pain. These conditions usually cause you to squint, which further strains on your eye muscles, resulting in a headache. Our team of experienced doctors are experts in PRK surgery, and can help you permanently relieve your headaches and other symptoms.
If your occupation requires you to read, write, or intensely focus for long periods of time, PRK treatment can also dramatically increase your productivity at work. By not experiencing daily headaches, you can direct your energy to the task at hand. You can also decrease time switching between glasses for close-up work, and shorten the amount of time your eyes must adjust for distance vision. Your improved sight can also help you enjoy detailed crafting and hobbies that you have avoided because of the strain on your eyes. With PRK, you can experience a significantly improved quality of life.
Most patients who undergo PRK surgery do not need to worry about remembering their glasses or dealing with contacts at all after their procedure.
Reduce the Hassle of Corrective Eyewear
If you have lived your whole life with glasses or contact lenses, you know how difficult it can be to always keep track of where they are or where you have placed them. Whether you forget to bring your glasses to work, or have forgotten your contact lens solution at home, it is frustrating having to improvise in order to see more clearly. Most patients who undergo PRK surgery do not need to worry about remembering their glasses or dealing with contacts at all after their procedure.
With your significant results and a minimal risk of complications, after surgery you may experience a boost in confidence, self-esteem, and a desire to be more social. You can also reduce the time you spend at the optometrist, searching for the right glasses, or running to the store for more contact solution and cases.
A major benefit of PRK is that it can treat a wide variety of patients. Not all individuals can qualify for LASIK treatment because of their health or eye conditions. Fortunately, PRK is often a viable and equally beneficial solution that can provide life-changing results.
