... That's the thing I wire contacts prior to this not a single problem at all. Since my PRK people are actually commenting on pupil size which they have never done before. Can you possibly find a link to those studies pupils enlarging with PRK? ... (6 replies)
... of putting lives in danger I really wish to make a change. I have heard stories, both good and horrible but I am still interested in going through with this.

... I have been wearing contacts for a long time and wondered if anyone else has the same problem. As I get older, my eyes seem to get drier and tolerate them less (Im 34 and female, on BC and also allergy meds so this may affect). Also, I seem to get 20/20 with my contacts but not so much with my glasses (esp at night), driving at night with my glasses it just feels like my... (3 replies)
Did PRK in OCT
Feb 5, 2008
... I had my PRK surgery October 3rd, 2007 (four months yesterday). Things have not gone well, I still have blurry vision in that eye and it doesn't appear to be clearing up. Anyone else having this problem? (8 replies)

... I have a question for you all who had PRK. I am almost one year post-op and, when I open my eyes for the first time in the mornings, it feels like I am ripping off a layer of my eyes. I use the Refresh tears throughout the day and Systane gel drops at night before bed. During the summer it was worse, as I had my window open and my fan on (obviously more drying for an eye,...

... 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. The proceddure itself (PRK) was painless except for when they took the tape off of my eyelids afterwards. They just yanked it off. Yikes! I would have to say that was the worst part. My eye watered a lot yesterday and all night long and part of this... (25 replies)
... course of 2 years and one month since I had my surgery. I just know that every morning, before get out of bed, I am going to have to put drops in. My biggest problem with it is when I get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. ... (7 replies)

... I haven't got my prescription glasses yet (they aren't ready) so I don't know how well they will help. My understanding is that surgeon's actually sometimes try to overcorrect patients, to a small degree, knowing that most people regress. It is when the overcorrection is much larger (like you and I) that is the problem. At this point, the surgeon's office can do nothing to... (26 replies)
... I also have tears with me at every moment of every day. Some days are worse but I always use them. I use the preservative free Refresh Plus drops. I have tried other brands but those are my favorite. I usually buy one box of the Refresh Plus and one box of the Refresh Optive drops. The Optive are a bit thicker and last a bit longer. I buy two boxes every 2 - 3 weeks or... (16 replies)
... ok, I understand you want to throw away your thick glasses, thats fine....but where are you getting this?? Many places are out for $$$... There are many failed results that do not result in blindness so they do not count as problems for reporting purposes. I know a -10 lady a little older than you, who couldnt wait just like you. She went forward and the night glare... (6 replies)
... Don't trust surgeons, hey will probably downplay potential risks, or maybe they think people cope well if they end up wit hoa's. I guess only serious problem for them is infection and other flap related problems, these hoa's are like just a little nuisance, well it seems like it is that way in lasik industry. ... (17 replies)
... I got a MAJOR headache and sinus pain the day of surgery a few hours later it was horrible but the next day i was all okay I was told that once you turn 40 your eyes change and lasik does NOT correct vision for people needing help with up close reading (iam nearsighted so distance was my problem). Once i turn 40 i was told that i could very well need reading glasses at that... (1 replies)
