Common Questions About PRK
* At your pre-PRK exam a corneal mapping will be performed. If Dr. Boling II notes irregularities, the mapping will be repeated at 1 week intervals until stability is documented.
** Please ask our surgical consultant for a further explanation of monovision. With monovision, the cornea of your non-dominant eye is treated to create slight nearsightedness. This nearsightedness (steeper cornea) has a stronger focusing power and is able to bend light rays that your lens cannot bend due to loss of elasticity. Your dominant eye is treated for 20/20 distance vision. With both eyes open distance and near vision is clear. If you are over 50 years of age, monovision allows you to see your dashboard, computer, stovetop, menu but you will need glasses to read for an extended period of time.
