I can already see pretty clearly, but not as good as before with glasses. I Just wanted to ask if you get to the level you had with glasses, or even better? Thanks for telling me your experience. :) 0 comments. share. save SmartSurfACE is a fabulous optimization on the previous Schwind transPRK approach. Which is, in itself, a pretty novel approach to performing PRK and definitely much lower pain and faster recovery time than alcohol or brush PRK. I didn't even need pain medication beyond basic Tylenol (APAP) and ibuprofen In my research on Reddit, and in the Google/Yelp reviews, the 'facility charge' appeared to be $600 or so per eye. And if you're in your 40s (or older), the Dr. would highly encourage only the re-treatment of a single eye to help with close-up vision (monovision). (trans/SmartSurfACE) PRK, so you're going to have some downtime. Day 3 and. I first read about it in this thread on reddit: Then LASIK shortcomings reverted to more advances in PRK (such as trans-PRK with SmartSurface). Here is an excerpt from Michael Lewis' The Big Short: In the 1990s, the ophthalmologists were building careers on performing cataract procedures. They'd take half an hour or less, and yet Medicare.
SmartSurfACE is so new at this point that there isn't a lot of independent peer-reviewed, non-conflicted studies as to its lower pain scores, etc. But consider that, on most YouTube reviews of PRK, most were guzzling narcotic pain pills and freezing drops for the first 3-4 days The Schwind Amaris 1050 RS laser system has what seems to be the best TransPRK treatment at the time of writing (2017), using SmartPulse / SmartSurfACE. This reduces recovery time compared to other options. Unfortunately Bergman Clinics only had the Schwind Amaris 750 S system, so I decided to Google around and find a clinic with the newer 1050. Pacific Laser Eye Centre has remained at the forefront of laser refractive procedures - it was the first centre in British Columbia to introduce PRK in 1991.

PRK recovery: what to expect during the healing process. PRK is every bit the miracle that LASIK is. It just happens to be one of those slower miracles. PRK is for those who appreciate the journey and the destination. If we were to consider good vision as a destination, and laser eye surgery as our mode of transportation to get there, LASIK. peanutz wrote: ↑ @raptorsfans there is still time for healing and potential improvement. Somewhere between the 3-12 month span my eyes healed to their final sharpness (20/25 and 20/20). Hang tight. @Johno87 yes one of the common side effects of Betoptic-S is stinging right after instilling. It was the only one of my drops that stung, but for me mild and short-lived However, SmartSurface algorithm decreases haze risk because it was developed to result in a smoother ablative zone. Dr. Kang (Schwind consultant) is the guy who created an electron scan showing the difference, and researchers who developed SmartSurface got the idea from surgeons doing a non-trademarked PTK smoothing step after deep PRK. 622 upvotes.

PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a laser eye surgery that corrects refractive vision errors by changing the shape of the cornea. The cornea is responsible for refracting (or bending) light toward the center of the retina, and refractive errors happen when the shape of the cornea causes the refraction to be off-center PRK took me about a week to heal up, faster than others but my prescription wasn't that bad to begin with. First few days were pretty annoying no pain or anything just slept for most of the time. Went to TLC for my 1 day checkup and my 3 day checkup to take out the contact lens/protection A unique mix of expertise, experience and international reputation, Dr Ron Binetter is the figure behind the Binetter Eye Centre.
