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.

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