Phototherapeutic Keratectomy is a surgical procedure to manage different corneal diseases such as granular dystrophy, scars on the cornea and a condition called recurrent epithelial erosion syndrome (REES), when the outer layer (epithelium) of the cornea wears away or blisters, and in most cases this occurs spontaneously.
PTK is a minor surgical therapeutic treatment that uses an excimer laser to treat mainly diseases of the surface of the corneal or corneal injury, by removing a small outer layer of tissue from the cornea. It is normally used after more traditional treatments have failed. It is done for therapeutic reasons, to correct documented medical eye issues.
PTK has been done for over 20 years and research studies show it is an effective treatment for corneal erosion syndrome with a success rate of over 90%. Some patients may require more than one PTK laser treatments. The laser treatment is minimally invasive and provides long-term results. PTK was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1995 for the treatment of anterior corneal pathologies.
