concerning those who had prk laser eye surgery, how would you describe the "blurry" vision, what to do?

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.

The same: This has been studied and there is essentially no difference between the two drops for PRK recovery and outcomes. Good luck.
