LASIK Eye Surgery in Aurora, Illinois

PRK in Aurora, Illinois

PRK surgery, much like LASIK, helps patients dealing with refractive errors lead lives free from the strain of relying on glasses or contact lenses. Utilizing the same iDesign 2.0 software, PRK delivers the same visual outcomes as LASIK. With LASIK, most patients can resume most of their normal day to day activities within 24 hours. With PRK, a patient should avoid activities such as working, driving, reading, exercising, or using a computer for 2 to 3 days following surgery.

Dr. Kraff will review many factors when determining if LASER eye surgery is a safe and effective treatment option for a patient. When here for an initial consultation, Dr. Kraff will tell the patient which of the two surgeries he feels is safest based on their specific measurements and visual needs.
