haze in my left eye

i am 23 years old and i had a prk on 15 october 2009 in both eyes.
i was suffering from high myopiain left eye. the number of my right eye was -3.0 and number of my left eye was -20.0 and i was only able to read first three lines on board with my left eye with -20.0 .doctor did correction at -15 in left eye, after prk surgery my vision improved and i was able to read 5 lines on board and my sight in left eye was 6/9 p with  -1.5 glass. but 5 months after the procedure i developed haze in my left eye and now about 3 months have passed with haze in my eyes and i have 6/9 p with -6.0 glass.i had OCT test it showed reading 114 um(micro mtr) haze on cornea( i am not sure is it haze or what) . i am very much worried about this and my doctor is saying that i have to undergo prk procedure again as by that way he is only able to clear haze from my left eye.
             . doctor prescribed me some medicines from day of prk. From day of surgery till now i am using them. medicines he prescribed were:

1. pilocarpine nitrate 2%   (1 time in a day)
2. ketorolac tromethamine  (4 time in a day)
3.fluorometholon tobramycin  (3 time in a day)
4. gylcerin and carboxy methyl cellulose ointment (4 time in a day)
5.neomycin and polymyxin B sulphates, bactirian zinc and hydrocortisone ointment  (1 time in a day).

       *   Doctor, is there any other way to treat haze except surgery?
       *   Doctor if i will have prk again to remove haze is there possibility of haze forming again in eye.?
       *   Is it safe to go for prk 2nd time?

1. I have no idea why you are on pilocarpine.
2. If steroids don't and time don't clear then some sort of cornea procedure is often necessary.
3. Yes it could haze again.
4. I suggest you get a second opinion from another cornea surgeon.
