... 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)
... I have to have PRK because of thin corneas. The doctor suggested I wait at least 2 weeks apart before getting the second eye done so that I'll have at least one good eye while the other heals. ... (25 replies)
... operation eye, did they give you a contact for it or what did you do to see out of it? ... (25 replies)

... Dear Brown, I'm glad you got regular lasik. Wow, what a surprise that must have been. I hope it works great for you. You'll do fine I'm sure. The healing process should be quicker than PRK. ... (13 replies)
... My vision is like one contact in and one contact out. I do notice a hairline improvment. I can see some things with a huge struggle right after I drop, but other than that, it's pretty much my right eye doing all the work. ... (25 replies)
... I think that is a lasik side effect and not a PRK one. In that aspect, we are the lucky ones. I do drop throughout the day, but still, don't have any trouble with that. ... (13 replies)
... Elyse, I asked my doctor about your other eye that's not healing as quickly. She said that with PRK the results vary so much from patient to patient, and eye to eye. I could very well have the same problem as you with my second eye. ... (25 replies)
... Well I had my procedure done yesterday on my right eye and I must say, I am relieved that I am having very little discomfort. ... (25 replies)
... in one and different in the other. I do see better in the afternoon but up close still sucks. I have to wear reading glasses, but who knows how that'll end up . ... (13 replies)
... Hey E and B! Hope you both had a good weekend. Mine was pretty good. ... (25 replies)
... lasik that I thought I would post some thoughts from my surgery. Last Friday I did epi on my left eye only. From what I have read the biggest problem people have with epi or prk is that they have crappy vision for weeks and it is debilitating. ... (11 replies)
... it leaves some excess in the AM, my eyes seem to be red too right when I wake. By the afternoon I don't get this so much, but it seems to be happening in my left eye mostly. ... (13 replies)
... p by step in the doctors office and under the laser. It's just trying to remember it all but I think I have it pretty well documented. I might wait for my second eye to make sure I have all the facts right. I wanted to do this so that others would understand the process from a patient's point of view. ... (25 replies)
... Stopped neurontin yesterday and was more aware of my eye but still no pain. More like a dry spot early in the day that has mostly gone away by evening. My vision in that eye is still blurry and a little double vision from time to time. ... (11 replies)
... Eventually, when your eyes are at the point the mine are, and reading glasses are needed most of the time, you can always try a contact lense in one eye, that will weaken the vision for ready and see how you like it. Most doctors will let you try it for a week or so to see if it's what you want. ... (13 replies)
... Thanks Elyse and BE.....maybe getting one eye done at at time is the trick. ... (25 replies)
... The left eye is still very very fuzzy today, but getting better. As long as I am seeing improvement, even a gradual one, I'm okay with it. I'm seeing well enough to get by without any glasses. ... (13 replies)
... If so, that has me a bit worried. ... (25 replies)
... Good luck to you!!! Get good pain meds! I only had haze for about a week, and it really was not that bad. ... (25 replies)
... It sounds like you had both eyes done at the same time. I can understand your frustration with that. Mine are scheduled 2 weeks apart, but I can always postponne the second eye until I feel ready. ... (25 replies)
