20/15 AFTER PRK TO CORRECT ASTIGMATISM
Doctor Wallace says:
I advised PRK for Seth due to borderline low corneal thickness measurements. He understood that this would mean a slightly slower recovery of optimum vision than if treatment were rendered by LASIK, but he also appreciated my recommendation. Whether laser corrective care is done by surface treatment (PRK) or by LASIK (under a protective flap), the laser is doing exactly the same sculpting.
We performed Seth’s care in May ’06. At his 1-year follow-up visit, his unaided vision is an astounding 20/15 in each eye. Particularly since his pre-operative prescription included a very large amount of astigmatism, this is a truly extraordinary result.
