A Flapless LASIK Alternative
Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA), also known as Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK), is a type of refractive laser surgery that is a LASIK alternative. PRK surgery does not create a corneal flap typical of traditional LASIK.
PRK is effective in patients with thinner corneas, minor corneal irregularities, or for patients with specific occupations/hobbies such as contact sports. It has been shown to provide results that are as good as LASIK. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, laser vision correction could give you the visual freedom you want. Schedule a consultation with our office to determine if PRK surgery is the correct type of refractive surgery for you.
