Dr. Matthew Russell explains the possible risks of PRK
The most significant risk of PRK is delayed healing. Recovery and healing of the surface of the eye should occur within two or three days.
PRK is a very safe vision correction procedure. The risks of PRK are exceedingly small.
In some people, it may take several days, up to a week, to completely heal. There are very rare risks of things such as infection. The risk of infection is less than 1 in 20,000.
In addition to the low level of risk, Dr. Matthew Russell reveals that the PRK surgery is pain-free.
