1 Week Following LASIK Surgery
Follow your prescription
Give your new eyes time to adjust
Ok to Exercise (with limitations).
At this point after your treatment, exercise can be resumed. However, use eye protection to avoid any rubbing or contact with your eyes. Avoid pools and swimming for at least 3 weeks after laser eye surgery. Contact sports should also be avoided for a few weeks, due to the higher risk of injury to the eyes.
Keep Your eyelids clean
Continue to avoid getting water in your eyes within the first 72 hours after a laser eye surgery procedure.
Keep Eyes Moist
Keeping your eyes well lubricated will assist with the post LASIK surgery results.
Toss the eye shields!
After seven days, you may stop using your eye shields at night.
