Dr. Matthew Russell reveals when you will see PRK results
Vision improvement after PRK, maybe noticeable immediately following the procedure.
During the few hours after the operation, there’s a contact lens in place and the vision is a little smokey, a little hazy, but you know that you’re seeing much, much better than you did before, without glasses. The vision tends to become quite blurred though while the surface layer of the cornea is healing. Over the next two to three days, the vision can be quite hazy and quite blurry, and that’s quite normal. And then it really starts to improve, so by about a week after surgery, you’ve had about 80% of the recovery of vision has occurred. And then it takes up to about six to eight weeks before the vision is really finally stabilized, and you’ve got the vision that you wanted to get after having the procedure done. However, you must be asking yourself how long will the PRK results last? Find out more here!
