What Is Laser Eye Surgery?
Also called refractive surgery, laser eye surgery involves reshaping your cornea (the front part of your eye) with a laser. The 2 most common types are PRK and LASIK—both use a laser to reshape the cornea.
During PRK surgery, part of the cornea is removed, and then the laser reshapes the cornea. This surgery may take longer to heal due to the nature of removing part of the cornea.
Healing time for LASIK is often quicker than PRK, but more complications could arise from this laser eye surgery because the surgeon will cut a flap in the cornea, reshape it, and place the flap back in place. The major risk here is that the flap can dislodge itself during the healing process.

I am 75 years old and have had issues with my eyes since birth, probably. I moved to Arizona 3 and 1/2 years ago and had to find all new doctors. On one of my first visits she diagnosed one of my conditions. It is called trichiasis. That is a condition where a person has two rows of eyelashes. They tend to curl inward irritating the eye. Now all that I need to do is have them pulled every few weeks and fairly soon they won’t even grow back.
I am so pleased to have found Dr. Serena Shao. She is opening a practice in Scottsdale and I will be driving 40 miles to be seen by her and her staff.
Every time I’ve came in for my eye visits Dr.Shao is very professional, thorough, and is always warm and sweet. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a eye visit or glasses. I give her a 10/10. I’ve been to several eye doctors and she is by far best one I’ve ever had!
Dr. Shao is super thorough and give good advise on my super dry eyes. I’m following her from her previous practice to her new practice
