My PRK Adventure

In late 2007 I underwent PRK laser vision correction surgery. This is sorta like LASIK, but instead of cutting a flap in the outer corneal layer, they chemically remove that layer, then zap you with the laser. It involves a longer recovery time, usually several weeks to several months as that layer grows back and stabilizes. I’ve even read some reports of people taking six months before their vision had settled, but such long recoveries seem to be pretty rare.

I was a candidate for LASIK but opted for PRK because I do a lot of fighting (kickboxing and grappling, sorta MMAish). While involving a longer, more frustrating recovery time, the PRK surgery leaves your eyes in a more stable state than LASIK. Had I gone with LASIK, there would always have been a chance that a stray punch brushing against my eye could loosen or separate that corneal flap, and that’s something I really didn’t want to experience.

I was quite timid about even undergoing the surgery, until I found several blogs of people’s experience online. After reading firsthand accounts, I was more at ease and knew what to expect at a level not conveyed by the surgeon. I decided that I’d keep such a log of my experience with PRK. So without further ado…

  1. Thanks for you info..I had my prk on dec 20th and left is still blurry and I was kind of downa nd depressed and checking internet about PRK and came across ur site and made me feel little better..i guess it will take time to recover..will wait for it…THANKS AGIAN.

  2. Good info.

    I got mine 2 weeks ago, and was discouraged that I’m still at 20/40 to 20/50. Apparently the doctor is correct when he tells me to just keep being patient.

  3. Hi, I am six days in and having a really difficult time seeing since I am used to being able to read. Can I cheat and just ask you when you felt like you were “back to normal” but yet improved?

  4. I am at my 2 week mark of haveing the PRK and I am now starting to say I wish I had not done it as I can hardly do anything, no driving, no computer, tv or all of that. I am so depressed about it. I know you must be patient, but the doc said it was going to be faster than the reality. I will continue reading your progress and see what all you went through, if I can read at all.

  5. Hi- and thanks for this. I have actually printed out your 5 week post op. blog and read it from time to time to gain some reassurance. Turning the the internet for reassurance can be so dangerous. You read terrible things and then worry more.

    How is it that you were so positive in your journey? You just seemed to know things would improve, whereas with me at 3.5 week post-PRK, I have such uncertainty that I will heal and become fully happy with my vision again. My eyes are still blurry (from close up to within first 30 feet- all day), and my left eye seems so much worse than the other. I wonder, will the left ever catch up? Will I ever see fine detail clearly again? I am so doom and gloom, but what I notice about your posts is your faith in the process.

    Poor vision is hard to ignore, because how do you get lost in something else? We use our eyes for everything- t.v., work, movies, playing with children… The only escape is sleep- so it is hard to enjoy life. I can’t sleep for 3 months! I don’t really want to lose one day of my life to this negative thinking, but have lost many. And I still have so far to go (assuming I get there at all).

    I do thank you very much and am happy for your success.

  6. Thanks for your account… I’ve had my surgery a week ago, and, although it is a GREAT improvement because I had -13 DO, so I really couln’t see ANYTHING without glasses, now I can fairly move around, but I still see blurry and much worse than with my lenses, but I’ll be patient and wait for the next months….

  7. I had the surgery done yesterday early in the morning. the procedure itself was a bit more uncomfortable than I expected. The first 3 hours in post op were very very uncomfortable. After the pain killers kicked in I was able to sleep for about 6 hours.

    i woke up being able to see pretty well with very little discomfort. This morning I put in my drops and went in for the exam. 20/20 and 20/45. I’m ecstatic to say the least. I was 20/600 yesterday. I have a minimal amount of ghosting, blurring, of double images. It gets better after the drops.

    I almost decided to not get the procedure done because I read about so many negative experiences. I spoke more in depth with my doctor and was assured that I had nothing to worry about. my main concern was missing more work that i could afford.

    It’s only about 32 hours since the surgery and I can honestly report that I’m completely amazed. I think that people who have negative experiences with PRK tend to post their story more often than people who have positive experiences.

    It’s only been a day so I’ll post again soon for an update. Probably when the lenses come off on Monday.

    I just wanted to post something that isn’t so negative. Obviously I have a long way to go by so far this has really been a walk in the park.

  8. At 8 months out, I have not been so lucky. My vision is much worse than it was with glasses, I have terrible eye floaters, and can’t see well up close any more. It has been the worst time of my life and I am afraid that I’ll never see well again. My problems are not even fully correctable with glasses. Especially the floaters.

    I hope everyone has a good outcome, but fear I am the ugly exception.

  9. It was reassuring reading your little “diary”. I had lasik in 2002 and in 2005 my vision started to get bad again. I got prk done 17 days ago and everything is really blurry and my eyes just hurt from the strain. I use eyedrops about every 30 minues and it just doesn’t seem to help. I am optimistic about a good outcome but it is very frustrating not being able to see anything. I thought after about 1 1/2 weeks I’d be able to do normal things. Driving is still hard, using computer is very difficult, but I can see the tv pretty good but then it stars getting blurry again. I can’t wait until the 3 mth mark. I’m just hoping I won’t need any more corrective surgeries in the future.

  10. If your job requirs alot of reading or night driving you need at least 3 weeks off of work to get PRK done. DONT be stupid like me and think your going back to work in 5 days. When they say 5 days healing time they mean thats when the pain should be gone. I had my PRK done about 12 days ago. Holy blurry vision, My wife is a doctor at the place I had mine done and she says its a combo of the steroid drops and swelling in the eyes that cause the blurry vision but you need to take all your drops it helps with overall outcome. It takes about 3 weeks for the swelling to go down. Ibuprofen helps reduce the swelling and the drops stop after 3 weeks so by week 3 or 4 you should be good to go. They say you get better resaults with PRK vs regular lasik. Regular lasik heal time is only 1 to 2 days but not every one can get regular lasik, I think 3 to 4 weeks a blurry vision is worth the end resault of 20/20 or better vision without glasses or contacts. So happy laser vision correction dont let 3 weeks get you down.

  11. I’m almost 3 weeks out, and hearing that the ghosting goes away soon after the steroid drops go away is very reassuring. That’s my biggest fear. The starbursts (both standard and pupil-induced) are much less annoying than not being able to read! The patience is definitely the hardest part.

    To Mel, I wish you the best. I’ve heard there’s a new procedure out recently (costs ~10k) and I have no idea if it’ll help, but you may want to talk to your doc about it.

  12. Thanks Matt! I think you are correct in your statement saying there are alot more people blogging about their negative experiences than all the people with positive ones. I had LASIK done 5 years ago and I am going for an Enhancement on both eyes on January 12th. I won’t know if I am getting PRK or if they will be able to lift the flap and give me LASIK again.It is quite an apprehensive time for me not knowing if the doctor will be able to lift the flap or not and I am not sure if I have the patience to do PRK if he can’t do a lift. Time will tell. As far as Mel is concerned,I have never heard of any case like his.One thing to always do is a thorough check on the doctor and company doing these kinds of procedures.It helps for your confidence level for sure. I will report back once I am able to see again.

  13. Hi guys,
    I am so glad to hear success stories. Even though my outcome was not what I wanted or expected, it somehow makes me feel comforted knowing that I am a rare exception. That in fact, maybe it wasn’t such a terrible decision I made- that these results could not be predicted. Does that make sense?

    I am learning to live with what I have. I can’t risk further damage or more eye floaters with another surgery. It was in hind sight, the worst decision of my life. But I couldn’t have known I’d be in that smaller percentage of people with unfavorable results. My farsightedness, eye floaters and up-close blurry vision persist.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement and congrats to those who are happy with your outcome. And to Brad- I’m a girl Mel!

  14. Had PRK Surgery on Oct. 30, 2009 – left eye only. Took approximately two and a half months experience real clear vision. Eye test results: 20/25 entire line with several letters on the 20/20 line.

  16. I’m 13 days post PRK, I wasn’t given enough information before surgery, so I was under the impression that it would take a week before I would get my vision back going by the brief info. I got from a nurse. I’ve done most of my information searching after the fact and find it comforting and more re-assuring that I will eventually see again. I now think about how many people are on the roads driving with the healing process of PRK…a very scary thought! The more I read about other peoples experiences the better I feel about the whole situation. Thanks.. 🙂

  17. First, let me apologize to Mel! I am sorry Mel i wasn’t thinking. As far as my January 12th procedure which ended up being PRK. Everything was pretty smooth. Had surgery @ 4:15pm and was in my hotel room (after some dinner) by 7:30 by the time we picked up some meds. By day 4 I wa seeing fairly well considering my CLB’s were still in my eyes. Never once did I have to take any of the Vicodin he prescribed. The only meds I took were 800mg of Ibuprophen. On day 8 I drove to have CLB’s removed and I was warned by the Doc that things would be worse over the next 12 hours and that it would take 2-3 weeks to start to see better. She was right. I had CLB’s taken out on 1/20 and here on 1/22 things are very eratic in terms of blurriness and clarity. As I write this I must get up close to the screen to proof read it. I have to say that the first thing in the morning is pretty clear. I am confident that things are progressing in the positive direction and I was told I will have to be patient. That will be something, my wife says that I wasn’t in line when those were being given out. All in all I guess since it’s been only 10 days, and it was PRK vs. Lasik, things are going according to plan.I will update in about 2 weeks. Again. Sorry Mel!

  18. hello i just had PRK on the 28th of jan. and on sunday had the bandage contacts taken out, vision is very blurry in just one eye and you are all right about the drops hurting like lil buggers…wowzers! i can see out of my right fairly well but the left is just a blur and has been since sunday (tuesday new). i am happy to report tho that i am not taking any pain meds besides the drops and a tylenol 500mg every so often to numb the scratchy feelings. any other info on how long the blurry vision should last after bandage removal from anyone would be very helpfull.

  19. Thankd for the blog!

  20. Hi Steve
    As I said previously, I had PRK on Jan. 12th and it is now 1 month since the procedure. Things are starting to get better for distance although it’s still not totally healed yet.I still can’t watch sports on my 50″ Plasma unless I am sitting like 6′ away cuz i can’t read the score. I am functioning back at work. I returned to work 3 weeks after having CLB’s taken out. I have to say I was quite dissapointed when I had CLB’s remove because my vision went to s**t 8 hours after. So, it’s just like my Dr. said it would be. For me I think things will be alot better once I get off the Lotemax drops in 6 weeks.Dry eyes are not too bad either.All I can say Steve is Patience,Patience,Patience. At least thats what I have to keep telling myself.

  21. I’ll have my PRK thursday,20.05.2010. I read everything you wrote.It helped me make an idea of how things will be afterwards.I’m a litle nervous about day 2 and 3 after the intervention but…i am still anxious yo get rid of my glases.I’ll let you know how things were.

    Sonia

  22. Today is day 6 after the PRK.It went well.As I read,the first day after the PRK was difficult and with each day that was passing my eyes were getting better,till yesterday,when I had the contacts removed…and my vision became very blurry…I also use a lot of eyedrops.With all this going on,I’m not sorry at all that I had the PRK,I’m very optimistic and the fact that I can read,watch TV or post this comment without my glasses keeps me holding on.

  23. Thank you for your blog and encouraging words. I am in Alberta, Canada and was wondering where you had your procedure done? No one mentioned the vaseline-like ointment I have to put in my eyes nightly for a month, post removal of the bandages and was curious if in fact anyone has to do this? It helps the eyes stay moist as there is no tear production while sleeping. My husband calls me squinty as I am compensating for the blurriness. I appreciate the reminders that the eyeballs need to stabalize and the swelling to subside for vision to continue to correct itself…patience…my sister had Lasik last year and the dy after her procedure she was sewing a button on a shirt…I gues I was hoping to have the same experience but am grateful for the daily improvements and all you people sharing…..M

  24. Thanks for documenting your story. I had PRK 13 days ago and was starting to really get a little disheartened thinking that I was supposed to be good to go in like 2 weeks. This is FAR from the case. I mean I’m driving to work now, but work is very challenging and I’m far from my best since I have to read/write on a computer all day.

    I noticed a great deal of similarity between the things you’ve said and I’ve experienced, so hopefully 20/20 will be waiting for me on the other side. Like you, I didn’t have to do PRK but heard good results from others, more stability over time, and my optometrist said it’s what he would do over LASIK.

    I’m a madman with the rewetting drops and I use a combo of the Refresh liquigel and the Refresh optive drops (with preservatives), probably every 10 minutes or so. My left eye is worse than my right for sure, with blurriness and with ghosting, but I can tell sometimes when I put in drops and blink some that it is really clear.

    Before I read your blog I was pretty frustrated, but now I just realize that I should trust the doctors and that everything will turn out well…I just have to keep waiting to do the things I want, like play golf. Thx again

  25. I had my surgery just over 4 weeks ago. I’m still very blurry at times. It fluxurates throughout the day. My big problem is at work at computers all day so there is no avoiding. I could only afford so much time off work. I thought I would be back to work in a week but ended up taking 2 weeks. I could of used a few more too i think.
    I am from Ontario Canada. And I too have to put that Vaseline type stuff in my eyes at night so my eyes don’t get dry. I had a couple nights before I used it were i woke up in pain because my eyes dried out and according to the doctors some cells get stuck on the lid as you open them and that is what caused that. Since I been using that gel like stuff at nights I haven’t had that problem again. It only happen 2 times but that’s more then enough to scare ya LOL
    I’m trying to keep positive but I have to admit I’m getting frustrated with the slow healing processes and I’m nervous that it didn’t fully take with me and I’ll have to go through it again. I still take the steroid drops though a couple times a day so I’m hoping by the time i finish those my site will be manageable.

  26. Thanks for writing this. I’m on day 8 after PRK now. Everything is blurry and it sucks to work on a computer (which is what I do for a living).

    However, this blog does give me hope for the future. Maybe after a few more weeks I’ll see better. I’m pretty impatient and miss reading without blurriness.

    At this point, I really regret getting PRK. My doctor really glossed over the recovery. While ‘lying’ might be a bit harsh, if I would have had any idea about this recovery I wouldn’t have had it done.

    I thought that after a few days I’d be pretty much fine. Yeah…no. I’m next to worthless at work, I’m late on several projects, and it’s not like I can go home after a bad day and curl up with good book.

    But regardless, thanks for blogging your experience, it’s nice to see light at the end of the long blurry tunnel.

  27. Hey guys… I am 4 weeks post prk and I would have to say that I am think my vision is about 65% of what I think it should hopefully be by the end of this unknown healing period. I have experienced ghosting and starburst at night but do get ghosting during daytime. My left eye is def ahead of my right eye and just like all of you i am hoping my vision improves because it’s very frustrating and scary. I am currently still taking the steroid drop flarex (3 times a day) fixing to go to 2 times a day .. In 2 days…. I hope decreasing the steroid drops will improve my vision…. It seems if I squint i can see a lot better and that scares me that maybe they did not correct my vision enough???? Please everyone update your current status bc I would love to hear how everyone has progressed.. Thanks!!’

  28. […] My PRK Adventure (three month recovery) […]

  29. DAY 12:
    I am freaking out! I had my surgery on both eyes on 12/14 so I am at day 12. I had about 3 weeks off from my MBA program that includes a TON of reading and I work on a computer all day reading architectural specs and drawings. I don’t know what I was thinking! I have 10 days before my courses start up again and I can’t even come close to being able to read a text book. The doctor said my vision would be so-so but I kind of feel like I was misled to a certain extent. I new my vision wouldn’t be perfect right away but I am seeing double out of both eyes. My left eye is more blurry than my right. I usually have about 10 minutes of pretty good vision in the a.m. right after waking up but then it goes pretty quickly after that. My right eye comes and goes and my left just stays blurry. To say I’m scared and second guessing this whole thing would be an understatement. I actually had pretty good vision in the right eye for about 5 days after the surgery but then it went. I am pretty much sitting around wearing sunglasses because my eye muscles just feel sore. This sucks. I didn’t want to be a drag over Christmas so I tried to shrug it off while people asked questions but on the inside I’m really freaked.

    DAY 14:
    Visited the doctors today he said I have island healing on my eyes…said he hadn’t seen it in ten years but not to be worried the chances he would have to go back in are only 10%…ughhh ooookaaay….Has anyone heard of this type of healing? He said it used to be much more common with wide range lasers but not the newer narrow beam lasers that he used on me. I can’t remember the exact type of lasers he described. He put contact lens bandages with a minor prescription back in my eye and also put a light prescription into my glass frames while I waited. He reduced my Pred Forte from 4 times a day to two and gave me a prescription for Alphagan P. Any feedback would be appreciated since I am freaking out. The fact that he cut my lenses while I waited at no charge is kind of making me think there might be a problem….

    DAY 15:
    Went to bed last night thinking at least I could see…even if it was with glasses. I woke this morning got to the office put my glasses on and everything was blurry again. The new glass prescription is barely working….I’m not sure if this is because my prescription is changing daily or I have a more serious issue…I’m definately scared. I imagined not having crisp vision but at least being able to read by now….

  30. Hang in there Tom. It took a while for me, but I’m seeing better now (I was the post above you). I see about as well as I did w/ my glasses prior to surgery.

    Would I do it again? I’m not sure. I definitely was not prepared for the recovery. It was a very scary experience and I’m guessing I’m not the only one who came to this blog looking for some hope. So, if it helps you at all, there is hope.

    Try to stay positive. I know it sucks, but it will get better. I spent a couple of weeks at work within inches of my display, but it slowly got better.

  31. Thanks for the support. I appreciate it. Right now I’m just wishing I hadn’t done it but it can’t be taken back. I feel the same way. The doctor did not flat out lie about the recovery but it was definately glossed over. I just wasn’t prepared for this. I hope the “island” healing goes away because it’s horrible. Anyways we’ll see how I feel about the whole thing as my recovery continues.

  32. I had PRK 12 days ago and my vision is coming along really well. The problem I’m having is my eyes start to tear up through out the day. I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with watering eyes in their recovery period?

  33. i’m so glad that finally i’ve found someone who has the same symptoms as mine.. i got my syrgery 2 weeks ago and i can’t say that i see well. Frankly it’s all a blur… I was quite worry and anxious about my recovery until i read your experience. And truly i’m very thankful that you published it, because it gave me courage!!!

  34. Thanks for the post! I just had PRK on April 15, so 10 days ago. I’m happy to read your experience, so I know what to expect and when! Currently, I’m at exactly the same place you were at 10 days. I can’t wait for the end results! 🙂 Cheers!

  35. Hey, Thanks for posting this. I had PRK surgery on April 14, making this 3 1/2 weeks into the recovery for me so far. My vision is still blurry (like there is a film over my eyes? it’s sort of hard to explain), I don’t have good long distance sight yet, and my eyes are still light sensitive. (I wear sunglasses everywhere) My eyes get irritated a lot too. I’m trying to be patient with the healing process, though I do get frustrated and depressed sometimes. It is good to hear that you had a good end result!

  36. I’m here too taking courage! Wow! What an experience this is. I had my surgery on the left eye only April 23rd, so I’m 24 days in. Still quite blurry, a bit irritated and sore, and does get watery when that occurs on occasion.

    I had very successful Lasik on the right eye in December, and the next day the flap was cut on the left eye, but it was ‘off center’ so we stopped and let it heal for 4 months. Then tried again, and there was still a problem, so we did PRK that day.

    I’m having some pretty serious dry eye, and when I do (voraciously) my various concoctions of artificial tears, I can usually see clearly for a few minutes. But I have a pretty good ghosting going on now (which really worries me) and that doesn’t seem to go away. I’ll say one thing, if both my eyes were like this now, ie: with PRK healing. I would nearly be out of commission. Since I work at home, I’ve been living with the shades drawn for these three plus weeks now, and have only spent two days out of the house.

    So we’ll see. I can relate to the posts regards the fear, loathing and frustration that goes on with this. All the websites explaining PRK say 4-5 days or a week. Seems like a few months may be normal too. So, please keep in touch people, and update your status… I’ll do the same… 🙂

  37. been 5 weeks sine i had the re-do enhancement for my left eye. Still blurry and miserable. My right eye I use for close up reading / computer. My dr said its still swolen and hazy, but not to worry. Well ni am worried.. I decided to get a pair of glasses temporarily for my right eye ( low prescription ) I hope to get thru this with NO corrective apparatus at all. Reading these posts, at least i dont feel alone. I guess it just takes time.. catch me on facebook: Carole Yarmo

  39. Had my 5 week to the day appointment Saturday. It was not a very good eye day, as it was quite dry, and that is what we are working on.

    So, my prescription was off, and not as good as previously. They didn’t even discuss it with me. The fogginess is lifting, but because of the ghosting / overlapping images, things are still not clear or of good quality.

    Dr. gave me his own private stash of a preservative free steroid in place of the Durezol I’ve been taking 4 times a day as he thought maybe the preservative was irritating the eye. Certainly it does burn/sting for awhile after I had taken it. This new steroid is very easy on the eye, I don’t feel anything from it.

    So, it’s Tuesday now, and I had a good eye night last night, and most of the day today, perhaps the best day I’ve had. In fact, I had pretty clear vision driving to the coffee shop this morning. So that was a nice treat. Had some other moments of clarity today also. Perhaps the new steroid is helping?

    The ghosting is still there of course, I was out this evening, and was in a parking lot looking at the lit up Wells Fargo sign against the dark sky, and there were some heavy ghosting going on there.. so that was a bit disturbing.

    But I’m planning on three months of major recovery, then three months of slower/final recovery, and am only just over a month in, but hopefully I won’t have to take two steps back from this recent advance forward… 🙂

  40. I had my surgery June 9th, so it has been 11 days since my PRK. I had a check up this morning, and my doctor said I’m healing surprisingly quickly. I was reading at about 20/25 maybe 20/30 (I’m also having a little trouble focusing on smaller fonts), but I was able to read this entire page comfortably from a normal distance (maybe 2ft).
    You were right, the second day was agonizing, and my vision reduced significantly after taking out the contacts. However, I am able to drive/read/watch tv comfortably. I would say I’m at 80-85% optimal vision at the moment.
    I just wanted to post my little personal account to also give hope. Like others have said, you mostly see the negative experiences posted on the internet, so I just wanted to let everyone know that not only can this experience be (rarely) very negative, but also incredibly positive and a great experience. In 10 days i leave on a study abroad to Spain, and i fully expect to be able to see the sights and function in a classroom just as well, if not better than before my surgery :]

  41. Update: I had my PRK surgery on April 14/11 (2.5 months ago. Already?! Went by quick!) My eye drop regime ended today. (Yay!) Since my last post, most of the irritation has gone away, although my eyes still feel strained sometimes. My long distance vision has improved. I still have issues picking out fine details (especially facial features at some distance) Most of the ghosting/halo effects have gone away. I was told at my last appointment that I would see even more improvement once the eye drops/gel were done. The recovery has taken longer then I expected. After the first month it has gotten much easier to deal with, especially as my vision is improving. I finally feel confident in my decision to have had the surgery (I was worried for awhile there). Adjusting to my new glasses-free image is the is one thing that I was completely unprepared for and it left me feeling shaky and uncertain in the first few weeks. Right after surgery I thought I had made a really bad decision because I didn’t like the way I looked without glasses (just wasn’t used to it yet). They were such a part of my identity for so long, I really had to adjust. 2.5 months after the surgery, I can say that I like the way I look without glasses now. I don’t know when it changed, I just gradually got used to the new me, and I like not having to deal with glasses now.

  42. Just to follow up, I last posted June 1 where I had a bad eye day. I’m doing quite a bit better now at 81 days / 11.5 weeks. My double-vision was still strong on my June 10 office visit – in fact every bit was there as on day one, and I had another visit June 22, still had strong doube-vision then too… but I could tell something was changing.

    Well, in a 10 day period I went from full-strength double-vision / ghosting as on day one, to totally clear distance vision! And distance vision was my goal.

    So, I’m in a much happier state now. The only thing that is bothersome is how much my near vision took a hit, a big hit. I’m hoping some of the near vision comes back, as it is quite blurry now. Whereas before the distance vision came in, the near was OK.

    So I give me eyes this grade out of 10:
    Left / PRK eye 9 distance / 3 near vision
    Right Lasik eye (from December) 8 distance / 7 near vision

    So right eye wins with a 15, left PRK eye only has a 12. Let’s see what happens in the next month.

  43. Do you have any updates since your 3 month post?I had my PRK a couple of weeks ago and I’m on my way to the recovery now. I’m also keeping a recovery timeline on my website http://www.ryumsh.info/prk-1084.html/

  44. i am 3 weeks into recovery and am feeling very depressed.
