LASIK & ALTERNATIVES

LASIK VS PRK

How often have you dreamed of waking up in the morning and being able to see without the need for glasses or contacts? Fortunately, there have been many advances in vision correction or refractive surgery that allow for just that. The numerous procedure options available at PECG can help make this dream a reality. From your morning swim to your evening run, life without glasses could very well be within your reach. Contact us today to schedule your no charge consultation.

Our Refractive Surgery program was built and is run by our experienced eye physicians. There is a board-certified ophthalmologist on site before, during, and after your surgery to provide the follow-up care you need and expect.

We offer more than Lasik! PRK, EVO ICL, and RLE are procedure options that you may also consider. To determine which procedure is right for you, a comprehensive assessment is conducted utilizing state-of-the-art technology. Based on the thorough diagnostic assessment, your surgeon will tailor a treatment plan to match the right procedure for your unique vision needs. Our doctors value the importance of your vision and will only recommend the safest procedure that can give you the results you desire. The choice is clear!

Custom PRK:

PRK is an acronym for photo-refractive keratectomy. It uses a cool beam, computer-guided ultraviolet light to reshape the cornea. There may be a slightly longer healing time with PRK, however the improvements to the patient’s vision are excellent!
 

Custom Lasik:

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. It is a delicate surgical procedure using the Wavelight laser that allows for a very predictable healing response. Your vision stabilizes rapidly, and you can expect to have little or no discomfort following LASIK. Most patients have driving vision within 24 hours of treatment. 

Cost of PRK & LASIK is $2400 per eye. However we offer multiple discounts through insurance and for public service workers such as police officers, doctors, teachers, firefighters, and EMTs. 

ICL (Phakic IOL):

EVO ICL (implantable collamer lens) is a thin lens implanted inside the eye behind the pupil, between the iris and natural lens. This procedure can correct higher levels of myopia (up to -16 diopters) than LASIK or PRK. The eye’s natural lens is left in place, and there is no corneal laser or treatment. PECG has the most experience with performing ICL surgery in the Harrisburg region.
 

RLE – Refractive Lens Exchange:

Refractive lens exchange is also called clear lens extraction. It is essentially cataract surgery performed on a clear lens or mild cataract. The natural lens is replaced with an IOL (intraocular lens), which can provide single focus vision or multifocal vision. This IOL advanced technology allows a person to see distance and near in the same eye. RLE has the advantage of being able to treat presbyopia as well as myopia or hyperopia.

Cost of ICL and RLE differs depending on the type of lens needed. It starts at $2700 per eye. However just as with PRK and LASIK, we offer multiple discounts through insurance and for public service workers such as police officers, doctors, teachers, firefighters, and EMTs. 

Financing:

As stated above, we do offer a variety of discounts. We also accept two types of financing: CareCredit and Alphaeon Credit. CareCredit is a health and wellness credit card that you can use at over 250,000 locations that offers with flexible financing options so you can pay over time. Alphaeon Credit offers flexible financing as well but is solely offered by dentists, dermatologists, ophthalmologists, and plastic surgeons.
