Trans-PRK is a blade-less procedure where an Excimer laser is used to remove the epithelium (surface laser of the cornea) and to reshape the cornea.

A contact lens is placed on the cornea and removed within 3 days. t-PRK is usually performed on patients whose corneas are too thin for LASIK or on corneas with a slight abnormal curvature.

The recovery is longer than LASIK, but corneas that undergone PRK are stronger than after LASIK.
