All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



When can I exercise after LASIK ?

I tell my patients that any activity after lasik has to take into consideration mechanical friction. You really want to avoid moving the flap before it heals really well (2-3 days). You also want to avoid dislodging the contact lens placed in your eye after prk/lasek. So, it is ok to exercise 2-3 days later as long as you are self-aware and do not rub your eyes by mistake.
