Not everyone has the eye characteristics to make them suitable for LASIK vision correction. This does not mean that clear vision cannot be achieved! Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism have been corrected since 1995 using a technique called photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). PRK was the precursor to LASIK and is still used today with great success.
Dr. Frank W. Bowden, III, performs PRK on patients who meet these general requirements:
- 18+ years old
- Stable eyeglass prescription for 1+ years
- No presence of eye disease
- Corneas too thin for LASIK
- Good overall health
- Full understanding of the potential risks
Our free Vision Correction Consultation is the very best way to determine if you meet these requirements and if clearer vision might be a reality for you. Learn more about PRK in Jacksonville by clicking on the links below:
