Hi Doctor,

This is Danish. I had isometric refractive error in my eyes so for that I had undergo trans PRK on 13th march but even after a month my vision still not clear. Can you tell me how much time it suppose to take to clear my vision.




Thanks for your Question



Usually after PRK, in the first week vision will improve up to 90% and well reach to 100% within the next 2-3 weeks. Fluctuation of vision is common in the first few month due to dryness that will improve gradually within 3-4 month and that's why it's important to keep using preservative free lubricant eye drops for at least 4 times a day for 3-4 months.

There are many caused that can caused blurred vision after PRK Surgery for refractive errors such as dry eyes, corneal haziness, under or overcorrection of the refractive errors.

The best option you have to do is to visit your eye doctor and let him/her explains to you why your vision is blurred.
