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 PhemtoLASIK, 48hrs are enough to be able to go back to a normal life. There are usually no specific restrinctions 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 importart to follow a strich 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: Astigmatism, MyopiaSolution: PRK
Tired of glasses and contact lenses, I met Dr. Badalà, who, after an accurate exam, suggested laser treatment to correct myopia and astigmatism. What a great choice!
Laser treatment was perfectly successful, fast and p... Keep on reading this reviewainless. It was carried out in a surgical center with high standard equipment.
Dr. Badalà and his team had been very warm and welcoming, before and after the surgery. As fast as two days after surgery I went back to my everyday life with the only inconvenience of placing many eye drops many times a day for a few weeks.
Surgery was over two years ago and since then I’m enjoying great vision and freedom from glasses.
Thanks to Doctor Badalà for his competence and professionalism.
