All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



How soon can I fly afterwards?

You can fly immediately after lasik. As long as you fly back the next day for your follow up appointment. Many of my patients ask me this question and i am not sure where the misconception originates from but flying is perfectly ok even within hours after the procedure. That said, keep in mind that airplanes are dry environment and you may need to lubricate your eyes in-flight even few months after lasik.

go back
