Post Lasik Care

Lasik Eye Surgery recovery is relatively quick and painless. Most patients recover in 1-3 days after surgery but even with a quick recovery there are still precautions and procedures you need to follow to make sure you heal properly. Your doctor should provide you with a check list to ensure you understand what you need to do but here are a few things you can expect.

After your surgery is complete make sure you go home and rest your eyes, keeping them closed as much as possible. The first few hours after surgery are crucial to the healing process, this is not a time for you to be going back to work or do any other activities. It is important to make sure you are not touching, rubbing, poking or doing anything physical that might hurt your eyes even if it is tempting. Do not drive a vehicle either until your vision has improved, for some this is the next day others wait a little longer.

You also might experience some mild burning or other sensations but make sure you do not rub your eyes. It is normal for your eyes to be dry after surgery but your doctor should provide you with special drops to help with the discomfort. If you experience any other side effects make sure to consult with your doctor. It is recommended that you do not shower the same day or even the next day to avoid water or soap getting in your eyes. At night some patients prefer to sleep with something over their eyes to protect themselves from injury.

These are just basic precautions and procedures to follow after your surgery. Many of these are just recommended and do vary between patients. To get a list of post Lasik eye surgery instructions or to find out more information about getting Lasik, call Vision One Lasik Center Today!

For your safety
we are not one of the national chains

The popularity of lasik vision correction has led to many profiteers and the emergence of many bait and switch national chains. They do not have a long term interest in your health, since the doctors do not own the practice and tend to come and go.
We have built our practice by meeting with every patient from the first consultation through the final follow up visit. We do not have sales technicians that do most of the work.
