7 Tips for LASIK Recovery | Dougherty Laser Vision Professional1 day ago - Healthcare Services - Westlake Village - 2 views
LASIK surgery is a form of laser eye surgery or vision correction that can help correct shortsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
LASIK surgery is simple and efficient and only requires a few days after getting the surgery to recover.
Some of the best tips for LASIK recovery include:
Wear nighttime eye shields for at least five nights after your surgery to prevent your eyes from rubbing against your pillow.
Don’t get anything, including water, into your eyes as it could cause infection.
Don’t wear eye makeup for at least a week, as it too could get into your eyes and cause infection.
Stick to light exercise and avoid contact sports which could cause an injury to your face and damage your eyes.
Avoid swimming and spas, as even chlorinated water can carry bacteria that may enter your eyes.
Don’t rub your eyes, as it can lead to infection or damage to your corneas.
Call your doctor immediately if you have constant or unbearable pain. Recovering from LASIK can be uncomfortable, but intense pain could be a sign something is wrong.
