vacation 4 weeks after PRK

Postby commonwealth » Sun Jan 27, 2008 4:11 pm

Hello! I am schedule for eye surgery on tuesday...PRK in my left eye and Lasik in my right. I have also scheduled a short (4 day) vacation to the bahamas 4 weeks later, and am not wondering what I was thinking.

Do you think i'll be ready for a vacation 4 weeks after PRK? I purchased sunglasses, spf hat etc but am nervous that I will need to cancel my trip.

Thank you. Katrina

You don't mention your eye prescription. This could indicate a different recovery, but If all goes well, you should have good "functional fuzzy" vision by four weeks after surgery. Don't be surprised if it is not perfect.

You may want to check into trip insurance and if it would be applicable.
