What does recovery from PTK involve?

This will involve taking things easy for a couple of days. Take a few days off work and use the antibiotic eye drops (and painkillers) to ease any pain or discomfort.

Don’t touch or rub your eye/s during this time. Wearing a plastic eye shield (similar to an eye patch) can help.

You will find that your eyesight is blurry or hazy for the first few days but this will settle down within a few days. It will be a week before you are able to drive.
