Yeah that's legit, just as long as its a taper. Dr. Lin had us off steroids at 2 months, which seems to have worked out, but they must be tapered.25jai wrote: ↑Jan 4th, 2018 2:13 pmNVision has me on lotemax (steroid) drops for 4 times a day for first month, and then 3 for second, 2 for third, and 1 for 4th month. My eye doctor was kind of suspicious on this prescription/dosage because she's had PRK patients doing it for 4 times first week, and 3 next week and so on.
This is serious and needs to be followed up ASAP.However, she's never had transPRK patients before so I'm her first and last time for my check up she said she will talk to Dr. Machat about it. Speaking of steroid drops, my eye doctor said my eye pressures have gone really high, and she suspects I'm reacting from the steroid drops.
Yup, something like Betoptic S? Or theres a bunch of others. They might change your steroid therapy, to get you off of it sooner. With SmartSurfACE especially, because its less traumatic and heals faster, there might be an argument for even shorter courses of post-procedure steroid therapy.Prior to surgery she said I was at 16-17mmHg, and typically patients who did laser eye surgery would drop to 12-13mmHg, respective to what my initial eye pressure was. After the first week I was at 20mmHg, so she prescribed me another drop to put on every morning to lower the pressure.
