Refractive Keratectomy Surgery in Vancouver, WA

Man Smiling - Refractive Keratectomy

Crisp and clear vision is within plain sight at King LASIK. Instead of correcting your vision with contact lenses or glasses, why not choose a permanent solution? By performing refractive keratectomy surgery in Vancouver, WA, we reshape your eye's cornea, allowing light to enter your eye and properly focus on your retina. Like LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a safe, pain-free, and time-tested procedure that helps people achieve 20/20 or near-perfect vision.

In fact, refractive keratectomy has been used for decades. It is an excellent alternative for patients who do not qualify for LASIK due to thin corneas or other conditions. Some of the benefits of choosing photorefractive keratectomy over LASIK include:

 Less Chance of Post-Surgical Complications
 Extremely Safe Procedure
 Does Not Produce Dry Eyes

 Does Not Weaken Cornea
 Good Option for US Military Personnel
 Proven Track Record of Success

Talented & Trained Refractive Keratectomy Surgeon

Our highly talented and experienced refractive keratectomy surgeon has been performing LASIK and PRK surgery for many years. He and his highly trained team of surgeons have successfully performed more than 100,000 surgeries. In order to initially qualify for refractive keratectomy surgery in Vancouver, WA, you should be in relatively good health, be at least 18 years old, and have a stable eye prescription. In addition, you should have no significant eye disease or injury. Allow our surgeons to determine if this procedure is right for you.

About Refractive Keratectomy Surgery

During LASIK eye surgery, a cornea flap is created so that our surgeons can access the underlying cornea. However, with refractive keratectomy surgery, we do not need to create a cornea flap. Instead, our refractive keratectomy surgeon removes the outer layer of the cornea (epithelium). This allows us to perform cornea reshaping directly on the cornea's surface.

The identical laser vision correction treatment is used for photorefractive keratectomy as LASIK. It is a painless procedure that provides excellent outcomes. As with any laser eye surgery, we cannot guarantee perfect results; however, a significant majority of our patients are extremely happy with the results. We ensure a high rate of client satisfaction by carefully and thoroughly screening our patients before recommending the procedure.
