All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



Can I remove the contact lens that was placed during LASEK ?

Unless instructed by your surgeon, it is better to leave it in place even if it feels uncomfortable. The contact lens is usually kept for about a week. On occasion, i instruct my patients to take it off themselves if we decide to keep it for longer than 1 week.

go back
