It is usually suggested to rest for 2 days after surgery. Il largely depends on the kind of surgery performed. In the case of PRK, Dr. Badalà suggest 4-5 days of rest: for this reason he usually performs the surgery on thursday in Milan and Catania so that patients can thoroughly rest over the weekend. With Femto LASIK, 48hrs are enough to be able to go back to a normal life. There are usually no specific restrictions for everyday activities, but it is obviously forbidden to touch the operated eye with dirty hands.
It may happen to experience visual tiredness, especially when reading, during the first months; this happens because the eye is still adapting itself to the new focusing manner..
When using latest generation lasers, it is very rare to experience complications in this kind of surgery.
It is fundamental to do all the pre-op exams available, such as corneal topography and tomography exams, corneal pachymetry, pupillometry and, if needed, aberrometry. With these exams it is possible to spot the optimal candidates for this kind of surgery, and which patients show a higher risk of complications (in this case it is best to chose a different kind of surgery or give up).
Most frequent complications (but extremely rare) are related to an incomplete myopia correction: in this case it is possible to perform another laser surgery or go back to glasses and contact lenses.
A more serious complication could be an infection: this is why it is important to follow a strict hygiene protocol for the first few days after surgery, using antibiotic eyedrops (under medic prescription). In any case, your ophthalmologist will evaluate every single case in detail.

Problem: AstigmatismSolution: PRKI 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 ... Keep on reading this reviewa 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.
