Laser Eye Surgery
Wavefront Trans PRK “No Touch” Surface Treatment) Appontment
With the Schwind Amaris laser system it is possible to perform “No Touch” all laser surface laser eye surgery.
This Trans PRK (Trans Epithelial Photorefractive Keratectomy) laser eye surgery is an advanced unique version of surface treatments such as Lasek,Epi Lasik and PRK.
Trans PRK is a transepithelial single step treatment that avoids the eye coming into contact with any instruments.
With Wavefront Trans PRK laser eye surgery a wavefront scan accurately measures in 3 dimensions the tiniest imperfections in your cornea known as higher order aberrations. This information allows the laser to reshape your cornea much more precisely than traditional Trans PRK.
The advantages of Wavefront Trans PRK laser eye surgery are predominantly in 3 areas:
- It has the potential to improve how much you can see; that is, visual acuity as measured by the standard 20/20 eye chart.
- How well you can see in terms of contrast sensitivity and fine detail.
- It minimizes any chances of night glare and haloes that traditional Trans PRK laser eye surgery may cause.
The overall advantage is a greater chance of achieving 20/20 vision or better than 20/20 vision.
