How fast is the recovery from LASIK vs LASEK (or PRK-EpiLASIK)?

My patients usually drive themselves in the next morning after LASIK. This is not the case after LASEK. It may take few days for them to be able to drive again. Similarly working at a computer may be a bit blurry for few days after LASEK. We tell LASEK patients to make arrangements as if they are not going to be able to work for 1 week, if they elect to do one eye at a time, they may be able to go back to work as early as the next morning.
