PRK Eye Surgery

Well I just got home from having my eyes fixed. It is amazing it has been about an hour and a half since the surgery and I feel great and I can see awesome. They want me to sleep for a couple of hours. After two vicadin I am still all wound up about how well it went and can't sleep.

The procedure I had is PRK so they brush the surface of the cornea instead of cutting a flap like in Lasik. The problem with PRK is supposedly feels like someone took sand paper to your eye and it lasts for about two days. So far though they feel fine. They had to do PRK because my cornea thickness was too thin.

I can't wait till ski season hits now. I didn't learn to ski until after I got glasses or contacts. I started skiing with contacts which isn't too bad, but I have probably lost 5 or 6 contacts over the years from crashing.

I had the PRK done on Dec 27/06. I like you was so excited to have it done. I never had any of the discomfort that they talked about. I actually drove home the next day (4 hours or so). I love to wake up and be able to see now. I opened my eyes underwater at the pool the other day for the first time since I can't remember when.

Congrats and good luck with the recovery.

(the drops taste really really good eh)

Ya those antibiotic/halucigenic eye drops are awesome. I tried sleeping for the past hour and a half and of course couldn't. I do notice now that one eye seems about perfect while the other eye is a little foggy. They mentioned the foggyness would go away, hopefully sooner than later.
