Photo Refractive Keratectomy, or PRK, is a FDA-approved LASER procedure that treats Myopia (nearsightedness), Hyperopia (farsightedness), and Astigmatism. Just like with LASIK, the goal of PRK surgery is to help patients lessen their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. At the Kraff Eye Institute, we first determine if LASER eye surgery is an option for a patient and then determine based on each patient’s unique structural characteristics which procedure is safest for them, LASIK or PRK.PRK for AstigmatismPRK for HyperopiaPRK for MyopiaRead More About PRK
Couldn't have asked for a better Lasik experience. Professional staff, excellent post-op care with the surgeon present at every appointment. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking about Lasik!
I had LASIK with Dr. Colman Kraff over 10 years ago. Just went in for my check-up and still perfect vision. I do not know why I waited so long to have LASIK. It is the best money I have ever spent.
My experience at Kraff Eye was wonderful! I've been there 3 times in the last week for my PRK surgery and follow up appointments. They are patient kind and want to give you the best experience possible. Dr. Kraff is calm and helps you stay relaxed before, during and after your surgery. I'm happy with my experience and would highly recommend them for your vision correction surgery.
I loved working with the Kraff Eye Institute for my Lasik surgery. I had horrible eye-sight. I went from a -8 and -7 contact prescription to perfect vision! I can't believe it. Highly recommend them.
Dr. Kraff was awesome. The staff walked me through my LASIK procedure and made me feel at ease. It’s been one day with perfect vision and I’m very happy with the results!
