In brief: Variable
Variations during the healing process can result in postoperative prescriptions.
If your vision can still be improved by glasses after your prk, then there may be a remaining prescription which could be improved by a second treatment.

In brief: Why not?
If your vision still not good after first time, you might need a touch-up.
If your vision good- then no, you dont need it.
