TRANS EPI-PRK
NON TOUCH LASER EYE SURGERY

Trans EPI-PRK laser eye surgery is a new form of eye surface laser surgery.

This advanced technique is a single step treatment that has the benefit of avoiding any and all machine contact with the eye.

All laser eye treatments and procedures are performed by our experienced Trans EPI-PRK eye surgeons. Contact us and one of our PRK team will be in touch.

Is Your Cornea Too Thin for LASIK?

While the majority of patients are eligible for LASIK, for some patients it is more clinically appropriate to take the “no flap, no touch” technique of Trans PRK surgery

With PRK there is no incision and the laser will remove the epithelium layer of the cornea and then apply vision correction. This reduces the risk of raising the fluid pressure within the eye. and reduces the risk of developing dry eye. Another advantage is there is less risk of developing any flap complications. This type of laser eye surgery can be performed on patients who are ineligible for LASIK due to thin corneas.

TRANS EPI-PRK EYE SURGERY BENEFITS

Laser eye surgery has come a long way since its introduction, laser eye surgery now extends beyond the correction of short and long sightedness but can also now be used to correct the inevitable loss of focus for near objects as we grow older, necessitating the need for reading glasses.

 

Trans EPI-PRK allows us to not just improve your vision now but to also mitigate against complications in the short and long term, such as manifesting dry eye symptoms.

Our approach to corrective laser eye surgery differs from that of some high street eye laser clinics.

Our doctors are involved from the start to examine you for eligibility, and to determine if any other conditions such as dry eye needs to be addressed prior to laser eye surgery in line with the best laser eye surgery practices. With this approach, the day of your surgery is well planned, with no unexpected hiccups.

As part of your aftercare you will be able to reach a doctor within 15-30 minutes of contacting us Monday to Saturday.

WHAT IS NO TOUCH TRANS EPI-PRK?

As technology advances, more procedures are being offered to patients which were not available before. Laser eye surgery is no exception.

The introduction of Trans-Epi PRK or otherwise known as the non-touch technique is an upgrade to conventional laser eye surgery. This requires the surgical creation of a flap to allow us enough of a window into the cornea to apply the laser.

This is important for several reasons, firstly, the doctor touches your eye less.

Secondly, there is reduced risk of developing dry eye symptoms. Finally a reduced risk of developing nighttime visual disturbances as is the case with conventional laser surgery.

 

While these risks are managed and mitigated, the non-touch technique gives longer-term peace of mind.

TRANS PRK SURGERY CAN
BE USED FOR...

Trans PRK surgery can be used to correct myopia (short sightedness), astigmatism, presbyopia (the need for reading glasses) and hyperopia (long sightedness). The procedure takes a significantly shorter amount of time to perform and will allow the patient to participate in contact sports.

Some patients may experience a longer down time from this procedure when compared to LASIK, and this is to allow the epithelial layer to regrow. Additionally, some patients may experience some itching or mild discomfort during the healing process.

AFTERCARE AND RECOVERY
AFTER PRK

The epithelium that is removed at the first stage of the laser procedure starts to regrow over the first few days, and vision can be blurred during this time and will gradually improve with epithelium regrowth. 
During the first 24 to 72 hours you may experience mild pain and sensitivity to light, and we provide you with drops to aid you in your recovery at this stage.

Why Choose PRK Over Other Laser Eye Correction Options?

While LASIK and PRK both apply a laser to the middle layers of the cornea to bring about vision correction, the way in which the laser accesses this part of the cornea differs.

 

- With LASIK, a second laser is used to create a flap in the surface of the cornea which creates a 'window' into the cornea. This flap is moved to one side and expertly put back into place once the vision correction has been done.

 

- Trans PRK Surgery on the other hand doesn’t create a flap at all, and instead relies on only the laser machine to remove the first layer (epithelium) to create this 'window'. Once this is done, an expert will operate the laser to apply the vision correction and a contact bandage lens is applied after the procedure to assist with epithelial regrowth.

Contact us to speak with a PRK doctor and we will guide you to choose the best option.

WHY CHOOSE PRK?TRANS EPI-PRK

THE PROCESS

On the day of your free Trans EPI-PRK consultation with us, you will meet your surgeon as well as other members of the team, who will perform your scans, examine your vision and conduct an initial work up. Next, your surgeon will complete an in depth examination, explain your treatment plan and answer any questions you may have.

Surgery is typically booked for a week after your initial consultation, to allow for sufficient time for consenting.

The eye procedure itself is painless and quick, where typically both eyes will be corrected in the same procedure, so you will be back in the recovery room within 20 minutes.

Before going home, you will be given instructions and advice on the do's and don’ts and what to expect over the following days and weeks.

You will notice a dramatic improvement after your surgery and the healing process will start immediately. As the swelling subsides over the next few days you vision will improve further.

Our World Class Aftercare includes a follow up appointment shortly after your procedure - this ensures you are on the right road to recovery and you're healing well. A doctor will be appointed to you, so you can make contact if you have any queries or concerns.
