After your operation, our team will guide you through our post procedure care:
- To aid in your recovery, we will provide you with a care package that includes eye lubricants. We recommend using these for at least 3-6 months after your procedure, but don’t worry, our team will guide you on the appropriate steps depending on you and your procedure
- You may wash your face the morning after your procedure, however, avoid opening your eyes in pools or the ocean for at least 30 days after your procedure
- You may use your mobile phones, tablets, or computers once you feel comfortable - on average our patients will resume use of their devices within 24 hours
- Make sure to rest - you may resume light exercise 2-3 days after the procedure but avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activity for at least 4 weeks
It is normal to experience glare or halos around lights, especially at night, after LASIK but this will gradually improve over time. Some patients may even experience mild dry eye for 1-2 years after LASIK, which is also normal. If you have any concerns about your post procedure recovery, don’t hesitate to contact our team.
