Q: When can I resume regular activities after my laser laser vision correction?
A: Patients can resume most activities within 3-5 days after having (LASEK) laser vision      correction?
Some general guidelines are as follows….
24 Hours Post Surgery

– Although the eyes will be sensitive, watching TV and reading are permitted, in limited amounts, and in-keeping with the patients
   comfort level, and with the use of lubricating drops.
 4-5 days Post Surgery
– Patients are permitted to resume wearing face makeup (eye makeup can resume 1 week post surgery)
– Patients can resume exercises and activities that don’t pose a risk of direct impact to the eyes
  I;e (exercise bike, treadmill, weigh lifting)
