Many people think that after the LASIK eye surgery everything’s gonna be normal within a minute like nothing but that’s not true! Yeah! It’s  a very normal surgery that takes 20 minute to complete but after that you have to take all the major precautions and follow the activity schedule to heal fast and to avoid infection.

So, here are the post-LASIK activity schedule that may definitely help you guys:-

Day of Surgery:

When you come home after the surgery you spend time with peace and day resting. Some patients like to have friends or family with them. This time your eyes are very sensitive so you should avoid doing any activity. On the day of surgery you have to follow these steps:

  • Whenever you feel irritating something in your eyes use lubricating drops and avoid rubbing your eyes.
  • You should not watch T.V or read anything.
  • You can take shower if you feel you can’t avoid it but make sure that no water will enter your eyes.
  • The day of surgery you should avoid alcohol consumption.
  • Avoid driving.

24 Hours After the Surgery:

The day after surgery some things have been changed. You can start some light work to do but still you have to avoid some things for some time. So here are the steps that you can do after the day of surgery:
