What is recovery from diamond burr cornea procedure like?

Cornea. Cornea heals quite fast within hours to a few days. Follow ophthalmologist instructions. Do not rub eye-eyelids.
Brief. This is used in recurrent erosion cases primarily. Bandage (comfort) contacts are generally left in place until healing occurs over 4-5 days so there is minimal discomfort.
Scratchy a few days. Because the cornea contains so many nerve endings, your eye may be scratchy for a few days. In addition to following your ophthalmologist's recommendations regarding any eyedrops to use, you may find relief with cold compresses applied several times a day to the operated eye for a few days.
