Every patient is different and the surgeon will provide specific guidelines for your post LASIK care. For most patients, they can return to work and normal daily activities after 24 hours. Our optometrist will perform an eye exam after the day of the procedure to determine if you can resume driving. By the end of the first week, most may return to exercise and wear eye makeup. For contact sports, patients should wait at least one month.
For best surgery outcome, you are expected to have follow-up eye exams 1-day, 1-week, 1-month, 3-month, 6-month and 1-year after LASIK surgery.
