Drops after PRK
you need to take drops for a few months after PRK to prevent scarring, if you stop them too soon you may scar
i would not perform a PRK in 2013 btw, i stopped performing PRK in 1999 when i switched my surface ablation procedure of choice to LASEK and epiLASEK, which like PRK can treat thin corneas or high Rx that LASIK can't treat, but is less painful w quicker recovery and no scarring

I would suggest that you consult with your operating surgeon. There are varying protocols depending on the surgeon and the patient.
