    Before your PRK surgery you will meet with a coordinator who will discuss with you what you should expect during and after the surgery.  During this session your medical history will be evaluated as well as have your eyes tested.  Likely tests will include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, and pupil dilation.  Once you have gone through your evaluation, you will meet the surgeon, who will answer any further questions you may have.  Afterwards, you can schedule an appointment for the PRK procedure.
