With LASIK, most patients go home after about an hour after their treatment concludes, they might have a nap, take some minor medications and hydrating drops.
Your eyes might feel itchy as if there’s something in your eye and your vision will appear as if you’re looking through a translucent shower curtain.
Later on, that night and the next morning is when you should see a major improvement in your eyesight.
Most people are able to drive after their next-day appointment.
The effects of PRK may take a few more days to stabilize after that. It’s also possible that you’ll experience vision fluctuations for the first couple of weeks.
