Amy,
I didn't have PRK but I can tell you that I had the blurry not blurry business going on pretty regularly for the first 3-5 months. So, while they are two different procedure, it seems normal. It may be the trauma we cause our eyes from the surgery. I think it is part of the adjustment phase and, while some may not have any problems, it seems like it is more common to have some issues than not at all.

Take care!
Oh, I'm having issues, alright. Seems I'm having nothing BUT issues. Hopefully things will start to clear up soon. I want to drive my car again!!

Amy,
I'm sorry to hear that you've been having some problems. I didn't have PRK, but I did have lasik surgery. My surgery was almost nine months ago and I still have problems. Most of my issues are dry eye related though.

I wanted to let you know that I've also had some blurry days when my eyes were really irritated or dry. I would recommend that you keep using plenty of drops. You might also want to see your doctor about your concerns. Don't forget that you paid them a lot of money for this surgery and that post-op care is included. If you think that something is wrong then I'm sure that they will see you.

Amy - I am glad i found you (and Bowriter for that matter) because I had PRK perfomred on March 24 too. I stumbled upon the Healthboards website and your posts whil surfing the web looking for others that have had PRK done.

I must admit that I did not have issues as intense as yours but I have had my own problems. The day after and the following day were most uncomfortable and I could not function at work real well for the first week or so because my PC screen was so blurry. However, my discomfort pretty much stopped after the first week and since then I have just been struggling with vision. If I had to guess, I would say I am at 20/50 in my left eye and 20/60 in my right which is weird because my right eye was better than my left prior to the procedure. Anyway, Friday 4/21 marked my one month anniversary and I was starting to get nervous about not having 20/20 vision. I feel somewhat better after reading bowriter's posts about the full recovery time and I know they do not guarantee perfect vision but I still will have a hard time swallowing the fact that I paid over 4K to still wear glasses.

What was your perscription in each eye going into the surgery?
Hi just to let you know my sister had prk done on Jan 27, I had lasik done the same day. She is doing great and I'm the one who has had issues. It does take time and she felt blind as a bat for two to three weeks. They say it improves for 6 months. So be patient, I'm starting to wish that I would have had prk, because the side effects are less. Hang in there, my sis loves it!!!
