Which Eye First?

Postby MarkD » Fri Oct 05, 2007 9:04 pm

I'm scheduled for PRK on my first eye next week (second eye, 2 weeks after that).

My doctor scheduled me for my right eye (dominant eye) first, although I never asked why you pick one over the other. Any rule of thumb when doing one eye at a time, which eye you do first?

No real rule of thumb. There are many factors, such as amount of correction (regression issues), time between surgeries, and just patient preference.
