LASIK and PRK comparable in cost and reviews in the Laguna Hills area

Millions of men and women of all ages rely on contact lenses or eyeglasses to get through their various tasks. At Orange County Eye Institute, we understand that how well you see affect how well you live. Especially if you are an active person who does not want to be limited by corrective eyewear on a daily basis, investigating the LASIK and PRK procedures for cost and reviews can be beneficial. For patients in the Laguna Hills, Laguna Beach, and Lake Forest areas of Orange County, CA, Dr. George Salib is a recognized resource for ophthalmologic solutions.

LASIK and PRK are common treatments intended to correct certain vision problems. Each procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home shortly after your procedure has been completed. Both refractive procedures have a positive reputation for helping patients enhance the crispness of their vision while also correcting vision appropriately. In fact, both LASIK and PRK have the ability to correct similar conditions, including:
  • Astigmatism, which can cause vision to become generally blurry
  • Nearsightedness, which affects clarity for up-close tasks like reading
  • Farsightedness, which can make it difficult to see street signs and other objects at a distance
Where the two procedures differ is in technique. LASIK is a laser-assisted refractive procedure that very precisely incises the cornea for reshaping, whereas PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy, manually reshapes the cornea with cool ultraviolet light. In LASIK, tissue beneath a corneal flap is shaped. In PRK, the surface of the cornea is treated without the creation of a flap.

Is LASIK better than PRK?


The procedure that is best suited to you will be based on your eyes, your vision, your lifestyle, and other factors. To determine the best method of achieving the results you expect is to consult with an experienced eye surgeon such as Dr. George Salib. Dr. Salib has undergone the LASIK procedure to improve his own vision. After a thorough assessment and discussion of goals, you will have the ability to make a confident, informed decision about the procedure that will make the most difference in your vision and in your life.
