But with the irritation and blurriness, I've been an irritable pain in the butt. I've been really good about the all the drops, but since my eyes are on different schedules, I think I messed up today. Did I just put in the antibiotic or the steroid ?.. didn't put away the one I just used...?
Have you ever head of anyone that had both the RK and PRK?

I can not only see distance, but close up too. Dr. said I would probably still need glasses for reading, but I don't! Only problem is dryness and itchiness (allergies probably). I want to rub my eyes like the old days, and still do to some degree, but not with the ferocity I once enjoyed! I am still using Refesh Plus 4 to 5 times a day and it helps.
Very happy I had PRK done, but the first couple of weeks were kind of rough. For me, having one eye done at a time was really the best option, as vision was very sketchy for the first 3 weeks.
I do still see starbursts at night while driving which was expected since I had the RK surgery previously, but night driving is now pretty good aside from that. I also feel like everyone is driving with their "brights" on. I flash them if they do or don't - just in case! Ha
