Dry Eye Following LASIK vs. PRK Study

We are studying the difference in the incidence of chronic dry eye following treatment with two commonly performed forms of refractive surgery, PRK and LASIK. The clinical literature has shown variable results regarding the incidence of dry eyes following LASIK and PRK. Both procedures are routinely done as standard of care. Both forms of treatment have shown excellent results in clinical trials for LASIK and PRK surgery.

The patients in this study will receive PRK or LASIK in both eyes at a discounted fee. This type of study has been done in the past at our institution and demonstrated that each form of laser vision correction resulted in similar visual quality.
