PRK and post-op concern with right eye

I was wondering if anyone who knows about PRK eye surgery can help me here. About a week and half a go I got PRK surgery done for both my eyes. Both eyes were -10 diopters. However, as the healing process is taking place I realized my left eye is getting healed faster than my right eye. My left is more clear, ghosting and blurring is almost gone, and I can see really well with that eye. However, with my right eye, it is still somewhat blurry, has quite a bit of ghosting (the farther the object the more ghosting), and doesn't have the visual acuity of my left eye. Remember, I got both eyes treated at the same time and used drops equally for both eyes since then. So my question is: is this a common occurrence for PRK patients shortly after the procedure (is it possible for one eye to heal faster than the other, all things being equal)? Or is this some serious problem I need to look into with my eye doctor? Thank you.
