If you\u2019ve recently undergone PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) with us, you\u2019re on your way to enjoying the benefits of improved vision. However, you may experience temporary blurriness following the procedure. This may be disconcerting, but don\u2019t worry \u2013 it\u2019s a natural part of the healing process. This blog will discuss five solutions to help you manage and improve your vision during this phase. 1. Patience and rest It\u2019s essential to understand that PRK recovery takes time. Your vision might be blurry initially, and stabilising can take a few days to several weeks. Be patient and allow your eyes to heal. Adequate rest and sleep are crucial to your recovery, so ensure you\u2019re getting enough of both. 2. Follow post-operative instruction Your surgeon will provide you with specific post-operative care instructions. These instructions are designed to help your eyes heal properly and minimise complications. Following them diligently is crucial for a smooth recovery. This may include using prescribed eye drops and avoiding rubbing your eyes. 3. Protect your eyes During the initial recovery period, your eyes will be more sensitive to light and environmental factors. Wear protective sunglasses outdoors to shield your eyes from harmful UV rays and bright light. 4. Stay hydrated Dehydration can exacerbate eye dryness and discomfort, contributing to blurry vision.1 Be sure to drink adequate water to keep your body and eyes well-hydrated. Additionally, use lubricating eye drops as your surgeon recommends to alleviate dryness. 5. Regular check-ups Don\u2019t hesitate to contact us for follow-up appointments and assessments. Regular check-ups can ensure that your healing process is on track and we can address any concerns promptly. As your vision gradually improves, you\u2019ll notice that the blurriness diminishes, and your eyesight becomes clearer. PRK offers long-term benefits in exchange for a short-term recovery period.2 Remember these solutions, stay committed to your post-operative care, and remember that your patience will be rewarded with better vision.
