PRK: Prk is a type of corneal laser surface treatment that doesn't require a flap to be created, as in lasik. But it takes longer to recover from, and typically 1-3 months for your vision to stabilize. Talk to your surgeon. It is also important to treat dry eyes, and although the surgey may have reduced your prescription greatly, there still may be a little left that some glasses would improve.

Continue follow up: Recovery from PRK is slower than LASIK, but in the end, the results are very similar. You will have decent vision after a few days but it can take a few weeks, even a few months, to get clear vision. Continue follow up with your eye surgeon and adhere to the recommended treatment. If you are concerned, see them sooner. Good luck.
