PRK Eye Surgery in Iran

PRK Eye Surgery in Iran

PRK or LASEK is an outpatient surgical procedure that is performed to correct hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and astigmatism. This method is one of the most appropriate and fastest ways to correct eye refractive errors (a way to remove eyeglasses and contact lenses).
Age Limit for PRK Surgery: You Should be older than 18 years.

Surgical Procedure

PRK surgery is performed to correct mild to severe myopia, mild to moderate hyperopia, and astigmatism. Because in PRK surgery no corneal flap is created, it is recommended for patients with thin cornea or for people who are engaged in activities that put them at risk for eye injuries (and potentially, corneal flap dislocations) after surgery.
Duration of Your Stay in Iran 1 week
The average cost of PRK surgery in Iran starts from $1200 for both eyes, which is much more reasonable than in other countries.


Before surgery, be sure to tell your ophthalmologist about your medical history and current medications you are taking.

  2. Do not wear makeup 48 hours before surgery.

  5. Do not wear contact lenses 48 hours before surgery. 6. If you feel anxious, take a sedative before surgery.

Post-Operative Care
