Post-Operative LASIK and PRK Instructions

  • Do not rub your eyes
  • You will be provided with protective eyewear to use for several days after the procedure.
  • You may shower or bathe afterwards, but avoid getting soapy water or shampoo in the eyes.
  • Avoid pools, hot tubs or the ocean for one week.
  • Do not wear makeup for one week.
  • Daily fluctuations in vision are normal after treatment. In some cases vision can fluctuate for several weeks before stabilizing.
