What is An Enhancement Surgery After PRK?

PRK and Enhancement Surgeries

After PRK surgery your vision will either be perfect or it will have been under or over-corrected. If under or over-correction occurs, your eye surgeon will perform something called an enhancement to repair the problem.

If vision has not improved three months after PRK, then your eye surgeon will most likely perform this enhancement surgery around that time. The good news about enhancement surgeries and PRK is: only 10 percent of people who have the PRK procedure need enhancement afterwards.
