How much will PRK cost in your case?

Factors That Affect The Cost Of PRK

When determining the cost of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), we must take a variety of factors into consideration, including:

Regional Pricing

The cost of laser eye surgery is typically higher in a larger city or metro area such as Washington, DC, due to the higher cost of operating a business in urban versus rural regions.

Experience of Doctor

A surgeon with more education, training, and skill will typically charge more than a less experienced surgeon. It is never a good idea to compromise quality for price when it comes to laser eye surgery.

Extent of the Procedure

Each PRK surgery is unique. Your price quote will depend on the extent of required corneal reshaping and how complex the eye surgery will be. During your PRK screening, we can provide an accurate price quote.

Cost of Anesthetic or Sedative

In most cases, local anesthesia to numb the eyes and oral sedatives to calm the nerves are sufficient for patients undergoing laser eye surgery. If more intense anesthesia is needed, it can increase the cost of treatment.

Advanced Equipment

Dr. Holzman uses the latest technology for LASIK and PRK surgery. The diagnostic and surgical capabilities of our advanced equipment and excimer lasers enable us to achieve excellent outcomes on a consistent basis.

PRK Patient: “The Results Have Been Amazing”

Robert Hood
2019

Dr. Holzman performed PRK surgery on me about a month ago, and I wanted to share my experience. My vision correction is so much better than with eyeglasses. Everything you can see (entire field of vision) is in focus for long-distance and middle-distance vision. Compared with eyeglasses, there is a wider field of view compared with glasses, but markedly less distortion and much sharper long-distance vision – my vision is better than with eyeglasses. If you are considering Lasik or PRK I recommend that you have an exam with Dr. Holzman and discuss your options. I’m happy I decided to have the procedure, and was really impressed by Dr. Holzman, and the results have been amazing – my eyesight is better than with eyeglasses!

PRK Offers Long-Term Savings

One of the most important benefits of undergoing photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) at one of our offices in Washington, DC, Maryland, or Virginia is that patients almost always save money in the long run.

The Cost of Contacts & Glasses

Refractive surgery eliminates the cost of contact lenses, glasses, contact lens solution, repeat prescriptions, and additional vision products that can add up to hundreds of dollars per year. And if you could put a value on the convenience of vision care following PRK surgery, the savings would be even more profound.

The Cost of Health Complications

Corneal infections are common among even the most diligent contact users, often requiring multiple doctor visits, antibiotics, expensive professional-strength eye drops, and time off work. After refractive surgery, health complications as a result of contact lens use are no longer a concern.

PRK versus LASIK Surgery

PRK and LASIK surgery are similar because they both treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping the cornea with a laser. At our Washington, DC, practice, we recommend PRK when patients have thin or damaged corneas. Learn more about how these procedures work.

During LASIK, incisions are made in the outer layer of the cornea, the epithelium, to create a flap. This provides access to the underlying stroma layer of the cornea, which is reshaped with an excimer laser so that light focuses directly on the retina. Once the cornea has been reshaped, the flap is closed and patients are sent home to recover.

During PRK, the epithelial layer is removed altogether. Once the epithelium is removed, the surgeon reshapes the cornea with the laser. Special contact lenses are then placed in the eyes to protect them and help them heal as the epithelial layer grows back. This technique results in similar results but a longer recovery period than LASIK.

“It Was So Fast You Wouldn’t Even Know It Happened”

Had my Surgery Wednesday and was immediately seeing so much better. As they say, the first 48 hours it fluctuates, bit no pain nor discomfort and my vision is stabilizing with amazing clarity! Dr. Holzman kept me cool, calm and collected the whole time, and it was so fast you wouldn’t even know it happened. Very appreciative I finally went ahead and did it!
