Who is a suitable candidate for PTK?

A significant factor that would make you suitable for undergoing PTK is if you suffer from either corneal damage or surface disease. Examples of such issues, which would increase your suitability for the surgery include:

  • Corneal dystrophy
  • Persistent epithelial erosion syndrome
  • Scarring of the cornea

Other components that contribute to determining suitability for PTK include general good health and realistic expectations regarding the outcome.

If you also wish to improve your eyesight, then PTK may be the ideal option for you. The procedure can be combined with laser eye surgeries such as PRK, LASIK or LASEK. If this is something, you wish to consider then you should approach your surgeon for further advice.
