Thanks, I'll contact them and ask. It maybe the counsellor said to wear them at night only during the time I had the bandage contact lens in. Do windows allow UV radiation to come through?burnt69 wrote: ↑Feb 5th, 2019 3:38 pmI believe the goal of wearing sunglasses, after the acute recovery phase, is to protect against UV radiation that can cause haze formation. The 'requirement' to wear sunglasses at night when outside sounds quite bizarre. I certainly was given no such advice. You might want to re-confirm such advice with the patient counsellor that you can contact at the clinic, or with your optometrist who can place the inquiry to the surgeon's office. Official advice may also have been communicated to you in writing (my PLEC materials are long filed away in a filing cabinet...).
Just out of curiosity, were you a previous (soft) contact lens wearer? I do believe that PRK recovery experiences can be quite different from those who were accustomed to long-term soft contact lens use, and those for which wearing a soft contact lens is a first time experience when they undergo PRK.
And yes I wore soft toric contact lenses for about 7-8 years. In the last year they became uncomfortable due to reoccurring dryness. The documentation suggested taking ibuprofen and tylenol up until day 3 however due to the pain i've taken a pill or two during day 4 and 5 (just extra strength tylenol). I'll be honest, I didn't expect this much pain. The experience of some of the people who underwent T-prk with similar prescriptions in this thread made it seem like pain was minimal.
