I’ve reached the 6 month mark!!!
It’s been 6 months since my PRK surgery! Which means my eyes should be leveled out at this point, and I’m glad to say they are. I’m so, so, so happy I got PRK surgery, it was worth the money, the bit of pain, and the first couple of weeks of fluctuating vision clarity.
At my last appointment, I did the same thing as always. Stare at the hot air balloon, get my eye pressure checked, and read the letters off the screen. Luckily I didn’t have to wait so long this time and got out of there pretty quickly. This time I could definitely see the letters at a lot smaller size. My left eye is better than my right, but together I can now say I probably see as good as I did when I had contacts. Following the eye exam, I was told I have no prescription (not far-sighted or near-sighted), but I only have .5 astigmatism in one eye and .25 in the other! That’s incredible!!!!
So, from now on I just go in for my annual eye exams!
I know I say this in basically every post, but be patient! If you just had the surgery done a few days ago or even a few weeks ago, your eyes will probably not be leveled out yet! I’m the perfect example! 5 months ago my doctor told me I was doing good but I’ll probably need the surgery again, now I see great. It’s amazing to wake up and see, not struggle with burning eyes after putting contacts in after a restless night, I can rub my eyes without contacts folding up, I can lay my head on a pillow without glasses pushing into my face, EVERYTHING! I love it and I’m sure you will too! Stay positive, keep your immune system healthy, and if you just so have to need the surgery again, accept it and everything will be ok!
I hope these updates have helped anyone deciding what to do or with after surgery. If you have any questions or you want to share your experience, comment below or reach out to me! ?
