Anyone have PRK??

... I got a new pair of Rx lenses so I could function while my eyes heal. He told me they won't heal as fast if I keep the lenses in. Again, I have to have them so I can drive and work. So he told me to take them out at night. That's what I've been doing since Saturday and with out the lenses, I seem to be okay. ... (30 replies)
... I was not at all prepared for this, as we were all expecting LASIK. The PRK was sprung on me that day just a few hours before the procedure. I had absolutely no information on it at all. ... (30 replies)
... You are really going through a lot. I'm sorry it's not going well. I don't know why they did both eyes at once, because with PRK and the extended healing time involved, most doctors recommend getting one eye done at a time. ... (30 replies)

... p Don't get me wrong, I can see enough to do what I have to do, but it is never crystal clear as many lasik patients have said they have. My husband has had lasik and never complains about a thing. How rude is that? ... (25 replies)
... there Brown Eyes! Don't worry too much about getting PRK. Better to be safe than sorry. My corneas were thick enough but my astigmatism is what forced the PRK. PRK is actaully a safer procedure because they do no cutting of a flap. There is not risk of flap errors or tearing corneas. ... (25 replies)
... My husband had lasik about 5 months ago and nevers has one complaint. For a majority of people, it's the best thing they have ever done. I had to have PRK. They do not make the flap with PRK, instead, they go through the cornea instead of under it. It has been a not so good experience for me. ... (4 replies)

... MY procedure cost 1000 euros per eye, so it's not cheap at all in my country. Well the same procedure 3 years ago was 2000 euros per eye, but clinics have been poping around, in my small countray and town, now there are 4 clinics who provide lasik or prk. ... (25 replies)

... thing and said that the epithelium cells healed really nicely. I only had to wear the eye shield to sleep until the end of the week. I know that with lasik you have to be careful with the flap for at least a month. I continued with my schedule of drops. With PRK I had to use the drops a lot longer than lasik patients. ...
