The former Miss World Australia, 32, underwent the vision-correcting procedure on Friday, and has been bed-bound ever since.

‘Home safe and ready to tackle 3/4 days of quite a bit of pain, but then helllooooo good vision,’ she added.  

On Sunday, the brunette gave fans an update on the recovery process via Instagram Stories by uploading a photo of herself in bed. 

The glamazon had her eyes covered with large sunglasses, while a plate of half-eaten toast sat on her lap.

Pulling a peace sign to the camera, Erin wrote: ‘Been a rough 24 hours’. 

In a subsequent post, fans saw a worse-for-wear Erin lying in her darkened bedroom with her eyes closed. 

‘Nurse has been an angel, I know this will be well worth it. But that 9/10 pain they promised was no joke!’ she lamented in the caption.

She then uploaded a short clip of herself propped up in bed with a large bruise on her forehead. 

In the caption, she explained that she’d accidentally bumped her head, as her vision was still fuzzy from the procedure. 

‘Walking into things in my blindness – happy days!’ she facetiously captioned the clip.
