What can go wrong with PRK -eye surgery?

Can most things be treated with another operation?
Although PRK is a well established refractive surgery, like all procedures there can be side-effects. More commonly occurring are blur, halos, glare, and over or undercorrection. Less commonly occurring are infection and loss of best-corrected visual acuity. Things to keep in mind are that PRK healing time is longer than LASIK and can be more uncomfortable. Many of the refractive side-effects may be treated with another operation but not all are ammenable to treatment. Pick your surgeon wisely and ask many questions. Good luck with the procedure and connecting with an excellent surgeon.
