How much can vision improve after 10weeks? (PRK)

Postby komobu » Tue Nov 20, 2007 2:37 pm

I had my PRK about 10 weeks ago (original Rx was -5.50 no astigmatism). I was 20/20 for weeks 2-6, but it has degraded to 20/25 or just a bit worse. Can I expect any improvements or do you think it will stay like this or get worse? I also continue to have some residual star burst, especially lights at a distance. :(

FYI I just stopped taking steroid last week. Any help would be appreciated.

After almost 3 months, it would appear you have slightly regressed. What are your refracted measurements now? Probably slightly myopic. If you have no dry eye problem, you probably will not see any improvement or "revert back" to 20/20. Best to discuss a possible enhancement with your doc if you want to achieve a sharper final result.

Yea that is what I kind of feared. But it is not that bad i guess, I knew what I was getting into. I would consider a enhancement maybe at the 9 month mark. My main hope is that my night time vision continues to improve.
