What is the recovery time after PRK?

One difference between LASIK and PRK is the recovery time. Patients having PRK should expect a slightly longer healing time, during which that may experience vision blurriness during the initial days of healing, and may experience brief periods of discomfort or irritation as the epithelial cells regrow. Prescribed anti-inflammatory and lubricating drops will minimize post-procedural discomfort and speed-up the healing process. As with LASIK eye surgery, the end results are improved vision.
