PRK Recovery Day 5

The scary sensation of not being able to see, and the feeling of something being in my eye is almost completely¬†gone. I woke up and I’d guess I started the day at 20/50 vision in my right eye and 20/70ish in my left eye. As the day went on my right eye cleared up enormously, well enough to drive comfortably. I’d guess that it wound up at 20/40 or better vision. My left eye by the end of the day was close to where the right eye started.

The feeling of sharpness being hidden by a haze is starting to go down. I don’t know if that means my vision is just getting back to where it should be, or if I’m going to wind up with worse than 20/20 vision. It’s unsettling, but probably nothing. Tomorrow I have my follow-up appointment where they take the contacts out. I’m curious to see if my wildly rough guesses of where my vision is comes close to what it actually is. If my left eye sharpens up as overnight as either eye did last time I’ll be pretty comfortable in driving in the morning. They say that your vision worsens when they take the contacts out. If that is the case, we’ll have to see how much worse. Hopefully that + sleep is a wash.
