Better Vision through Advanced Technology
Custom PRK: Vision for the Active Lifestyle
The U.S. Virgin Islands and the Caribbean as a whole are considered by many to be paradise on Earth, with a beautiful, tropical climate and many recreational opportunities on glistening turquoise waves and soft white sand. Residents of and visitors to our region enjoy spectacular scuba diving, sailing, skiing, swimming, snorkeling, bicycling, and a host of other water sports and beach activities. However, individuals who wear glasses or contacts may feel unable to fully participate in and enjoy these activities. Many of our past patients became tired of the choice they had to make between the inconveniences of wearing contacts or eyeglasses or, worse yet, the inconvenience of not being able to see. Conventional PRK and custom PRK at our practice helps those from the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, St. Martin, Anguilla, and other areas across the Caribbean, achieve freedom from glasses and content lenses while simultaneously enjoying the natural surroundings.
Whether you desire independence from glasses as you explore the depths of the ocean, or you simply wish to enjoy the beauty of the islands without the hassle of contact lenses, our practice can help by providing state-of-the-art treatment.
Safe, Proven Results
Both conventional and custom PRK have proven to be safe and effective procedures. They offer vision correction results that are equal to LASIK, without the risks and complications associated with creating a corneal incision.
In addition, conventional and custom PRK can be used to treat many patients who have thin corneas or large pupils, and therefore may not be good candidates for LASIK. If you are considering refractive surgery, our experienced surgeon and staff serving those from the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and other location around the Caribbean and the world, can help you determine which refractive surgery procedure is best for you.
