How TransPRK is Done?

TransPRK is a laser vision correction that is safe and minimally-invasive as it is surface-based. Here’s a simple step-by-step explanation of how TransPRK procedure is done:


Step 1

Patient lies down and simply looks ahead at a blinking fixation green light. No suction ring nor surgical instrument touches the eye.


Step 2

Epithelium cells are removed with the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser.


Step 3

Laser goes on to reshape the cornea curvature to correct the refractive power in one step seamlessly.


Step 4

A transparent, high-oxygen permeability content soft contact lens is then placed over the cornea to act as an artificial cornea flap to protect the treated surface while the epithelium cells regenerate.


Step 5

The epithelium cells then take 3 to 5 days to regenerate and heal. It is important to use the eye drops medications prescribed and stay away from strong sunlight for good healing. The high-oxygen permeability contact lens is removed after 5 days.
