If you have blurry vision due to nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you may want to clear your vision permanently.
PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) eye surgery is an effective alternative for patients who do not want or qualify for LASIK.
At Rockland Eye Physicians & Surgeons in Garnerville, NY, and West Nyack, NY, we can perform PRK to improve your vision.
The Cost of PRK
The cost of PRK laser eye surgery varies, but typically patients of our New York practice pay between $4,100 to $4,600 for both eyes.
At our New York practice, we accept CareCredit® financing, which offers different payment plans depending on your credit history and payment terms. Generally, patients with good credit who pay off the cost of vision correction surgery in a shorter period of time get better interest rates.
|Plan Length||Price Range*|
|12 months||$342 - $383|
|24 months||$171 - $192|
*These payments do not include interest, lates fees, or other charges.
Other Payment Options
We accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express). Payments are due on the day of service. We also offer the convenient option of paying through our online patient portal.

PRK Treats Refractive Errors
What Causes Refractive Errors?
Refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism result in blurred vision. These conditions are the result of an irregularly shaped cornea, which can cause light to enter the eye incorrectly.
How Does PRK Correct Refractive Errors?
During PRK, your surgeon can reshape the cornea to ensure light enters the eye at a proper angle. During treatment, we can remove the outermost corneal layer and reshape the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Candidates for PRK
PRK is an ideal option for patients who do not qualify for LASIK. LASIK requires your doctor to create a small flap on the cornea, which can cause complications in patients with thin corneas or corneal scarring. Because PRK involves removing the epithelial cells without creating a flap, it is a good alternative for patients who already have a thin cornea.
Previous Laser Surgery
This procedure may also be more appropriate if you have had previous LASIK surgery more than four years ago. In these cases, we often prefer to perform PRK to fine-tune your vision.
If you have certain risk factors that could cause a corneal flap to become dislodged, you may be a better candidate for PRK at our New York practice. For example, certain jobs and athletic activities could increase the possibility of flap complications.
