Immediately Following LASIK Eye Surgery

Friends Don't Let Friends Drive After LASIK


After your successful laser eye surgery, have a friend drive you home and make sure you wear your sunglasses. Rest your eyes and keep them closed on the ride home so that they are comfortable.




Just Rest Your Eyes


Ideally, you will want to keep your eyes closed for 2 to 4 hours as part of the immediate LASIK recovery process. Taking a nap and wearing your clear plastic shields will speed up the recovery process. It's not unsual to experience mild sensitivity for a few hours but there should be minimal discomfort. After 2-4 hours, remove the plastic shields and, as directed by your surgeon, begin using your prescribed eye drops for healing and to keep your eyes comfortable, and lubricated




Yep, They Might Be A Little Sensitive But Don't Touch!


Avoid rubbing, squeezing or touching your eyes after LASIK surgery, since the surface of your eyes are still sensitive. Wear your plastic shields when sleeping and if your eyes are sensitive to light, wear your sunglasses. If your eyes become dry or irritated, use your preservative-free artificial tears to help keep your eyes comfortable.




Rest Your Body Too, For 24 Hours!


Virtually all LASIK surgeons recommend resting for the first 24 hours following your laser eye surgery. That includes avoiding reading, computer work, strenuous activity, and television (sorry) during this period.




Keep Water Away From The Eyes


Don’t take a shower the first day and avoid getting soap and water in your eyes for several days.




Keep The Meds Going


Make sure you take any prescription medicine your doctor may prescribe, as directed.
