Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
are you available to chat?
yeah buddy. how are you Dr?
Hanging in there watching the snow come down outside my window.
She wants to have PRK in the lasik eye? Has she been told that her cornea is too thin for a Lasik touchup
she is Russian.
so she doesn't clearly communicate
except in Russian, eh?
is touch up the initial thought.
I don't know any Russian, except for what I've learned on James Bond movies.
Touch up is a better option if she has enough corneal thickness left. PRK is just lasik without the flap
lesson for today.... from this James.... da= yes; ochen = very ; harashod= good
See. Now I don't have to learn anything else all day.
always we must continue to learn.... or revisit the oldies but goody pearles
so PRK could be an option IF the corneal flap lacks integrity
I think your friend should see about having a "touch up" done on her original lasik. It is easy to pull up the flap even years later.
does anyone in the TN, VA, Carolinas still do PRK ?
ok... i understand
Maybe, maybe not. Once again you have to make sure the PRK doesn't go all the way through the flap. Takes an experienced surgeon and careful preop measurements
