ClearView Eye and Laser Medical Center of San Diego is proud to offer Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) or modern photorefractive keratectomy ( PRK ) as a vision correction option for our patients.
Using the iDesign Refractive Studio which combined precise wavefront and topography imaging of the eye to personalize the laser treatment for your eyes, Dr. Sandy T. Feldman can correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. 99.4% of eyes achieve uncorrected vision of 20/20 or better six months after wavefront guided PRK using the iDesign refractive studio for nearsightedness, and an uncorrected vision of 20/15 or better in 92% of eyes. Patient satisfaction is extremely high at 98.8%.1
In re-sculpting your cornea, or the front surface of your eye, Dr. Feldman is able to greatly improve your eye's ability to focus light onto your retina. This enables your eye to function correctly and see much more clearly.
Dr. Feldman uses the same advanced laser technology for PRK as for LASIK. Nationwide, 98% of patients using this technology see 20/20 or better following PRK. Many see even better than they did before with glasses or contact lenses. There are some risks, but they are rare and typically can be treated by Dr. Feldman after the procedure. These risks include under or over-correction, haloes, light sensitivity and dryness.
