In an attempt to stay on topic I am wondering if anyone here has experience
with woodworking after PRK. Most people these days have LASIK, but my
employer insists on PRK or nothing.
I had PRK one week ago and I can finally see again. The literature that I
read looks like no dust exposure for 1 year. But the doc says it should be
OK as long as I minimized dust (I do), wear good safety glasses (I have good
safety glasses and a face shield), and use lubricating eye drops often to
minimize dust in the eyes.
Now I am 20/20 (maybe better) and things look great. When can I get back in
Did you discuss this with him or just let the warning come in with all
the other things the doc was telling you?
Do you have things to minimize dust as in dust collection,
There is a list on web on which woods are nastier as far as reactions
then others. You might want to skip those woods for now.
Get a second medical opinion from someone qualified in doing PRK's.
I hope you work something out,
