On procedure day, anesthetic drops will be instilled into your eyes. A flap will be created with a laser if your procedure is LASIK or the surface cells will be gently swept away if you have PRK. Your information is transferred from the WaveScan to the laser if you qualify and if you would benefit from CustomVue iDESIGN Technology. Both procedures usually take seconds.Most patients experience very little pain, if any. In many cases, you might notice visual improvement immediately which should continue to improve over time.
What is PRK?
The contact is worn for about 5 days and is removed by an eye doctor. After PRK, one should experience functional vision but it will most likely be foggy for a while. With LASIK, the vision outcome is quicker than with PRK.

The function of the weak alcohol solution is to loosen the epithelial layer (50 microns) and to allow it to be draped back in a sheet of epithelial cells, thereby exposing the underlying Bowman’s layer. The laser is then applied to Bowman’s layer in the same fashion as in PRK.
