I think with your previous history and age why would you take a chance with having another corneal procedure (PRK) that can likely have elongated results and possibly make your vision worse. I would get a second opinion if you are considering it. I am not sure if you will be getting an honest opinion with NVision or any other place to be honest although I would say you Bochner and Herizg are the most reputable places in North America/USA.alexstoev wrote: ↑May 24th, 2018 4:57 pmThanks Catchjosephnow for the fast response. I never looked at it this way (corneal surgery after having a corneal surgery), but your description is right on the spot. As you know the cornea is made of stroma (mostly) and epithelium. The superficial k does not touch the stroma, just the epithelium which grows back within 5 to 7 days. Since the PRK works on the stroma do you still believe it does not make sense to have it done? Also, if you have some suggestions for real cornea specialist would you mind sharing them with me.
I can't speak for any corneal specialist that I know (I am in healthcare) but I wouldn't waste their time if you are not even a candidate for PRK in the first place.
