What are the recommended ways to manage the post-treatment effects of transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy (TransPRK)?

Doctor's Answers (1)

Modern trans-PRK is optimised at every step to aid in rapid rehabilitation including
  1. Topical application of cold-saline to the cornea to minimise post-operative pain
  2. Application of mitomycin-C to the corneal stroma to minimise post-operative haze
  3. Use of a bandage contact lens to minimise post-operative pain/discomfort
  4. Post-operative drops to reduce post-operative haze and aid in visual rehabilitation
  5. Regular post-operative follow-ups to optimise the medication regime
