#DidYouKnow patients with diabetes are more likely to suffer from eye conditions, the most common of which is diabetic retinopathy. When blood vessels in the retina become damaged, the eye can no longer process visual information, and patients may experience loss of vision or even blindness. #DiabeticRetinopathyTreatment

The surgical procedure for #PRK is only slightly different than #LASIK. Both reshape your eye’s cornea to improve its ability to refract and process light. In PRK, a doctor removes the epithelial (outer) corneal layer completely. This provides increased access to the underlying stromal layer.

#Glaucoma is a build-up of pressure in the optic nerve. Since glaucoma often has few or no symptoms until it is very serious and can result in blindness, it is important to undergo regular ocular screenings and treat glaucoma as early as possible. #GlaucomaTreatment

When your tear ducts and ocular glands are producing an insufficient amount or quality of #tears, you may experience irritation, blurred vision, or even tears running down your cheeks as your eyes attempt to compensate for dryness. #EyeCareCenter #LASIKSurgery

Of the three laser vision correction options (#PRK, #LASIKsurgery, and LASEK), one is not better than the others. They are different modalities that can be customized to each patient’s needs.

#PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) surgery is an alternative to #LASIKsurgery, in which the outer, epithelial layer of the cornea is removed entirely.
