LASIK often results in improved vision without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses. In general, you have a very good chance of achieving 20/25 vision or better after refractive surgery. More than 8 out of 10 people who undergo LASIK refractive surgery no longer need to use their glasses or contact lenses for most of their activities.
After LASIK, you may feel a temporary burning or itching sensation immediately following the procedure. You’ll probably have blurred vision. When it comes to healing after LASIK eye surgery, it usually occurs very rapidly. Vision may be blurry and hazy for the first day, but most patients notice improved vision within a few days of surgery. Following are some useful tips for you to follow for a quick LASIK recovery:
At least one day of complete rest is recommended.
Refrain from taking part in any strenuous exercise for at least a week, since this can traumatize the eye and affect healing.
Avoid rubbing your eyes.
Don’t drive after LASIK until your eye doctor sees you the following day and gives you the go ahead.
Follow your doctor’s instructions and take any medication prescribed.
