Photorefractive keratectomy, also known as PRK surgery, is a type of laser eye surgery used to help correct refractive errors. The main difference between LASIK surgery and PRK surgery is instead of creating a flap as in LASIK, the epithelium is removed and the laser is directed at the anterior stromal layers. After the surgery, the epithelium grows back gradually over three to five days.
This procedure is a great alternative for patients who have thin corneas, or if they have an active lifestyle where there is a risk of dislodging the LASIK flap. If you are interested in having PRK surgery, please schedule an assessment to see if you are a candidate for the procedure.

I am considering a career change and was referred to Dr. Bhamra by Dr. Burke for ICL surgery to correct my vision. All the staff at Vector Eye Centre were highly professional and the clinic was run very efficiently. Overall it was a very good experience, and I would highly recommend Vector Eye Centre and Dr. Bhamra.
The staff at Vector Eye Centre are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. If you are uncertain about any procedure or your eye condition, just ask and they will certainly give you a satisfactory explanation. I am very short sighted and the normal multifocal lenses were not available for my correction. Dr Bhamra obtained the LISA lenses from Ziess Germany and now I will never need glasses or contact lenses.
Dr Bhamra and his staff have been absolutely wonderful in dealing with my wife’s extremely complex eye condition. Having a world-class physician / surgeon like Dr Bhamra in your corner is well worth the wait, I would highly recommend Vector Eye Centre to anyone dealing with eye issues.
