Let me share with all of you my experience with PRK surgery.
I had my surgery done on 20.11.2011 which is already almost 3 weeks.
I had -3.0 on both eyes with no astigamtism. As my surgeon claims everything went as planned with no complications. My distance vision now is as i would say perfect! Its already been so great few days after surgery. So what im doing here ? Here it goes...
Almost all kind of side effects and complications occured. My right eye is much worser than left one. I have double vision (ghosting), lack of contrast, halos, and the most annoying starbursting. Im scared to death these days.
Tell me please. Is it normal that those side-effects aint going away ? I know that it takes pretty a lot time for eyes to heal after PRK surgery. My doctor said even up to 7-8 weeks to stabilize my vision. He said that day by day everything will be getting better. What a lie. Its been 15 days since i get my secure-contact-lenses took off. As i said my distance vision is fantastic, but side effects are on the same level every day since. Why nothing is changing ? Have my eyes stoppped healing process ? I dont understand how is it possible that within next weeks post-op complication will dissapear. If everything is the same each day, why would it rapidly change in the near future ? Im really worried.
Has any of you guys been going through the same situation ? Do i have still a chance my eyes vision will get better ?
ps: I'm sorry for my poor english.
