TransPRK

The Brilliance of
No-Touch Laser Technology

TransPRK is a modern laser refractive surgery that offers an advanced, touch-free approach to vision correction. This minimally invasive procedure treats myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. TransPRK also eliminates flap complications in other treatments like LASIK while offering even greater benefits to those with thin corneas and high levels of nearsightedness – making it one of the fastest routes towards crystal clear vision. Although the recovery process is longer as compared to other laser vision correction procedures.

Advantages of Trans-PRK

One-step procedure with fast results of only 3-5 minutes per eye, making it a great choice for those who need a quick and easy solution.

No corneal flap is required, so there is no risk of any flap-related complications.

Suitable for active individuals, such as athletes and contact sports players, seeking refractive surgery without compromising their lifestyle.

A safer option for those in high-risk jobs like air force pilots, military personnel, navy divers, and others who cannot undergo LASIK due to thin cornea or high myopia.

Lower risk of long-term dry eye than other laser eye surgeries such as LASIK due to fewer steps taken in the procedure, which reduces the amount of corneal tissue manipulation.

Perfect for people who want to reduce their dependence on glasses and contact lenses without going through an invasive process.
