This is a really good question. The discomfort after PRK for most patients is probably a day or two. The discomfort also can depend on if you are accustomed to wearing contact lenses- as they are often a protocol of healing after the ICL. I have had patients who were uncomfortable for a week. Over the counter pain relievers can be helpful during this timeframe.
How long does the pain last after the PRK procedure?
