Will I Need to Wear Reading Glasses After PRK?

The need for reading glasses is 100% dependent on your age. Only patients who have presbyopia (typically mid 40s and older) need reading glasses. However, for those patients, vision correction options (monovision) will be discussed during the consultation.

How Long Will It Take for My Vision to Stabilize?

The long-term final results after PRK typically settle down in a couple of months. This recovery process does require patience from our patients. Remember, the safety of your vision and long-term (not necessarily immediate) results are our priorities. It is important to note that our patients are able to see well enough to drive and work five days after their PRK laser vision correction surgery.

The Providence Eye team will carefully go through your recovery process with you during your complimentary consultation, as well as during your post-op appointments.
