The Refined TransPRK Method

Refined TransPRK action is the latest type of eye surgery that was first developed by Dr. Adib Moghaddam and his research team. Refined TransPRK is a more advanced and improved TRP technique. In fact, in this method, the laser beam is adjusted for each patient individually, based on statistical and optical parameters.

One of the remarkable differences in the performance of Refined TransPRK with other methods is different postoperative outcomes. As a result of Refined TransPRK, night vision and daytime vision quality increases, and supra vision or pilotage vision is seen in 99% of patients.

How to do Refined TransPRK

Based on the latest research and scientific findings in the Refined TransPRK, the patient’s demographic characteristics (such as age and sex) and the patient’s optic characteristics (such as refractive errors, refractive errors, corneal thickness, etc.) are used to treat each patient. They are considered as the main parameters for laser radiation regulation, and treatment for each patient is designed. From each eye, there are 8 to 10 consecutive scans, and the surgeon uses the most accurate scan to adjust the eyesight. Laser radiation is performed only once, and the epithelial layer and cornea stroma are in a single laser stage.

Then, an anesthetic drops were first used to perform the procedure, and the eyes were washed with a balanced saline solution. In this practice, there is no need to use alcohol and do not cut, and cleansing is done entirely using an eximer laser.

What to do before Refined TransPRK

  • Understand exactly what surgery is planned, along with the risks, benefits, and other options.
  • Tell your doctors ALL the medicines, including natural health products, such as vitamins, supplements, and herbal remedies you take. Some of these can increase the risk of bleeding or interact with anesthesia.
  • If you take blood thinners, such as warfarin (Coumadin), clopidogrel (Plavix), or aspirin, be sure to talk to your doctor. He or she will tell you if you should stop taking these medicines before your surgery. Make sure that you understand exactly what your doctor wants you to do.
  • On your surgery date, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne or any product containing heavy fragrances (such as lotion, creams, perfumes or fabric softener).
  • Please do not use any product that contains alcohol such as hairspray, mousse, perfume and after-shave.
  • Wear comfortable clothing on your surgery day.
  • There are no restrictions on having a pacemaker during your laser eye surgery.
  • It is important not to wear eye makeup for at least 24 hours before surgery and the day of the surgery. For your security, the procedure may be postponed if makeup is detected.
  • We recommend that you avoid consuming alcohol on the day of your laser surgery, as this tends to dehydrate the tissues and can delay the healing process.
  • Avoid smoking on the day of your surgery.
