Most people associate any type of surgery with an invasive procedure involving many risks, pain, and lengthy recovery time. However, laser eye surgery is different, particularly the Photorefractive Keratectomy, or PRK eye surgery.
Read on to learn why some people need PRK and find out what you should do after the procedure to aid your recovery.

It helps to take at least 2-3 days off from work and properly rest your eyes, particularly if you work with screens such as in an office job. Once you return to work, take regular breaks and avoid being near an air conditioning unit.
You will notice an improvement in your vision within the first couple of months from your laser eye treatment. You may have to go for a few routine check-ups every few months at first to ensure your eyes are healing well.
At UELC, we care about our patients and strive to provide them with accurate solutions when it comes to eye problems and laser corrective eye surgery. Our professionals will help you determine the best treatment option.
