I underwent PRK for hypermetropia, astigmatism and presbyopia in January 2014.

About ten years ago I underwent PRK to correct myopia. Over the years my sight has gotten  worse, then I met Dr. Badala, who proposed me a customized PRK.

6 months after surgery the result is very good: I got back my eyesight without glasses.

The only advice I can give to those who approach this surgery for the first time is to keep the eye still during laser treatment. During the operation you do not feel any pain. Two/three days after day I felt a little but bearable discomfort.

It is very important to carefully follow the doctor’s instructions such as: the use of eye drops and sunglasses, rest, do not touch the eye and avoid injuries…for the first few days it takes a little patience, but in the following weeks the result is appreciated day after day.
