Raleigh, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/07/2014 -- LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery are two of the most common types of vision correction. Raleigh laser eye surgery practice, Triangle Eye Physicians P.A. helps patients make informed eye care decisions by explaining the difference between the two surgeries.

Having performed over 12,000 laser eye surgeries, Raleigh board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Patricia Smith is comfortable with many procedures to help patients decrease their dependence on glasses.
“Many patients don’t know there is another alternative to LASIK, should they not be a good candidate or have concerns about the surgery,” said Dr. Smith. “It’s important for patients to know they have options and that they can get honest answers from their doctor.”
LASIK eye surgery is the most popular form of vision correction, which entails creating a flap of corneal tissue and applying the sculpting laser under the flap in order to provide the correct focusing power to the eye. LASIK patients typically notice immediate results, with quick recovery.
PRK was the first laser eye surgery developed for vision correction over 25 years ago. It has undergone many refinements over the years. While it’s not as popular as LASIK, it is still an excellent option when the suitability of the corneal thickness is borderline, or if patients do want the permanent flap of LASIK present due to their occupation.
Both LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery are safe, effective, accurate, and have a high satisfaction rate, when patients are chosen with careful consideration to their eyes’ health, and their needs. Triangle Eye Physicians carefully tracks outcomes, complications, enhancements over time to ensure results that are among the best nationally.
