Who should consider PTK?

PTK is suitable for patients with a disease or injury to the surface of their cornea. This includes corneal dystrophies such as granular dystrophy; scars on the cornea and a condition called ‘persistent epithelial erosion syndrome’.

If you are in good health and are looking to improve your current eyesight prescription then this is a good option. It is, however, important to remember that this does not guarantee perfect vision. You will still require glasses or contact lenses afterwards.

If you are looking for a procedure which can do this then consider PRK (which can be combined with PTK), LASIK or LASEK. The surgeon will be able to advise you about these procedures.
