PRK offers patients an excellent option to achieve their desired vision correction but recovery of vision is delayed until the surface layer of the cornea heals. Your doctor may recommend separating the treatment of each eye by one week.
- Procedure fees ($495 per eye): The fee for each refractive surgery procedure covers the surgeon's fee, some eye medications for the first three weeks and materials needed during surgery and enhancements needed within one year of initial surgery.
- Pre-operative and follow-up fee ($300 per eye): Your pre-operative and follow-up care may be performed by a UW Healtlh eye doctor or by your family eye doctor if pre-operative arrangements are made. Services usually include an initial eye examination, corneal topography, some eye medications for the first three weeks and follow-up visits over a 12-month period.
- Facility fee ($900 per eye): The facility fee is for use of the laser at TLC.
