Can I see well immediately after laser eye surgery?
With laser eye surgery, your eyes start to recover as soon as you stand up after the treatment. In the first phase after the treatment, an inflammatory process may develop. This is normal. Your immune system responds to the treatment and sends platelets and white blood cells to the treated site. This can cause swelling. Because of this reaction, your vision may be temporarily blurred after the treatment. This happens because your eye has taken on its new shape.
The swelling usually subsides within 24 hours, but it can take a little longer. You will notice that your vision improves quickly during this process. In the period after the treatment you will be able to quickly resume your daily life. With TransPRK you need at least 1 week before you see enough again to be able to resume daily life.
It is important to realize that you need to recover during the first 2 weeks after the treatment. Give the eyes time to get used to the new situation. Seeing in the distance, seeing in the evenings and reading close by can be a bit more difficult.
