How do I prepare for photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) eye surgery the day before surgery?

ANSWER

On the day of surgery, eat a light meal before going in, and take all of your prescribed medications. Don’t wear eye makeup or bulky hair accessories that will make it hard to place your head under the laser. If you don’t feel well that morning, call the doctor's office to find out if the procedure needs to be postponed.
