Laser Eye Surgery
Another first, we were the first to introduce PRK to New Zealand, which is known for its very high quality vision results, with very high safety levels. In PRK a thin layer of corneal skin is removed from the front of the cornea, after which the laser treatment is performed. A soft contact lens is then placed on the eye to protect the skin whilst it heals – this usually takes six days. PRK has made laser vision correction possible for many people who weren’t able to have LASIK due to thin corneas. If you weren’t suitable for SMILE or LASIK, talk to us about PRK.
