Same old same old. I THINK the ghosting is a bit better than before but it's definitely still noticeable, especially when I read on the computer (which I need to do all day long) and gets worse as the day goes on. It doesn't seem like there is improvement, but when I think back to three weeks ago when I could barely use the microscope I know it's gotten better. The differences are just too gradual for me to really notice. The last few days my eyes have been a little red and itchy - I don't know if that's part of the healing process or if it's allergy related. I really really hope I have normal eyes soon though, the blurred (yet clear) vision throws me off kilter a little. By the end of the day, I tend to feel pretty tired and my eyes feel strained. I want to note though, that I can see distance quite well and can make out details - the blurriness in my vision is all due to ghosting and not the kind of near-sighted fuzziness I had before.

This post is one day overdue, but yesterday I couldn't bring myself to write "No change from last week." Today however, I feel that there might be some slight improvement? A bit less ghosting? Or maybe it's just wishful thinking. This aspect of PRK healing did not really strike me previously when I read through other people's experiences. Slow progress I can handle, but this "no noticeable change" from one week to the next is annoying. In reality, I'm sure there has been progress, only so subtle that I can't detect from day to day. It was easier in the beginning when I had little milestones to test myself with, but how do I measure ghosting? I know that in the morning things look best and sometimes by the evening, the ghosting can be quite severe. I'm re-reading some of the PRK blogs now and taking comfort (again) in other people's timelines. Keeping my fingers crossed!
