Any Experience With PRK Surgery?

Yesterday, Candace and Cole brought me to the eye doctor so I could have my first appointment in preparation of eye surgery. I’ve been considering it for a while, but was hesitant. When Cole ended up not being as expensive as we thought, we had some money available and figured this was a good time to try. (Plus, I like playing with Cole in the morning and the glasses keep me from biting his neck which I enjoy doing.)

After this first appointment, my doctor recommended PRK surgery over LASIK. I trust her opinion. I’m just so much less familiar with PRK (even though it is the older of the two procedures.) As far as I know, the long term benefits are better, but the recovery time is longer and a bit more painful.

Has anyone had experience with PRK surgery? I know each case is different, but I’d love to know how it went for you.
