Advantages of TransPRK laser eye surgery Non-Invasive and Bladeless: TransPRK, or Trans-Epithelial Photorefractive Keratectomy, is a non-invasive and bladeless procedure. With no need for surgical blades or incisions, you can experience a more comfortable and potentially faster recovery. Preservation of Corneal Strength: TransPRK gently reshapes the cornea\u2019s surface, making it an excellent option for individuals with thinner corneas. The procedure\u2019s non-invasive nature helps preserve the structural integrity1 of your eyes. Reduced Risk of Infections: By removing the need for a corneal flap, TransPRK may reduce the risk2 of certain post-operative complications, such as flap-related infections, making it a safer choice for some patients. Versatile for Prescription Types: Whether you have myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, TransPRK can effectively address a wide range3 of refractive errors, making it a versatile solution for various vision needs. Disadvantages for TransPRK laser eye surgery Temporary Visual Fluctuations: Some patients may experience temporary fluctuations in vision during the initial healing stages.
