Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) has been one of the most commonly used laser eye surgery technique for the past 20 years. This technique involves the surgeon removing the outermost layer of the cornea (the epithelium) in the area where the underlying cornea is to be treated with a hand-held instrument. The excimer laser is then applied to the cornea to ‘shave’ a minute amount of tissue from the surface.
The technology allows an advanced form of PRK called Transepithelial PRK (T-PRK) to be used. The laser itself removes the epithelium before proceeding to alter the corneal shape.
Following patient who treated with trans-PRK cleared out that:
Trans-PRK is a method with fewer complication possibilities and with long-term results comparable to or even better than LASIK. In our opinion, the good long-term results more than compensate for the short-term disadvantages of trans-PRK.
In recent years, Dr. Soheil Adib Moghaddam and his colleagues in Iran and Germany have done a very comprehensive study on the clinical outcomes of this surgical procedure. Dr. Soheil Adib Moghaddam in 2010, for the first time in Iran. Now, a new method of Trans PRK surgery has been developed and refined.
The refined TransPRK method is one of newest refractive surgical techniques by laser, which, for the first time in Iran, was used by Dr. Adib Moghaddam. Dr. Adib Moghaddam, considers the features of each patient and individualize the surgical coordination. This leads to a better result of the surgery qualitatively and quantitatively. Refined Trans PRK could improve the stabilization eye vision and success rate of surgery.
