Re: Prk

I had the procedure on February 24th. It has been 4 weeks as of today since the surgery, though my visual clarity has gotten better, I still only have approximately 20/40 vision in both eyes. I have repeatedly called my doctor over the past 4 weeks and I am still being told to be patient and give it time. They assure me that I SHOULD have 20/20 vision by the end of the healing process (90 days). I was unaware that the results would take so long with PRK and I am hoping for the best. I am able to function, but obviously not at 100%. I can drive, see near vision (out to about 15-20 yards, then it starts getting blurry and not as clear. As far as discomfort and dry eye, that ended at about week 2-3. I was told to expect the bulk of the healing between weeks 3 and 5. I spent $4,000 for the procedure and am growing somewhat impatient, as I expected the healing process to be quicker. If I end up with less than 20/20 when it's all said and done, after spending $4,000, I will be upset to say the least. A friend of mine had PRK over a year ago with the same doctor and he had faster results and doesn't regret it in the least. I am worried as he has told me that he had clear vision and clarity almost immediately afterwards and continues to this day. I go in for my one month visit with my regular doctor next week and I called and spoke with his RECEPTIONIST ealier today. She told me that I should have been seeing significant results by now and that this was unusual, but then again, this was my doctor's receptionist. Let me know what you know about the procedure and any other questions that I can help you with. I'm still crossing my fingers.
