We would normally recommend that you take the day following your laser eye surgery off work. This will depend on your individual circumstances as recovery time varies depending on a number of factors such as the type of treatment you have and your work environment.
LASIK laser eye surgery has a faster visual settling time, with nearly all patients noticing a marked improvement the same day of their laser eye surgery. Most people are able to drive and return to work within 48 hours after laser eye surgery unless their work environment is very dusty or dirty.
Recovery following LASEK laser eye surgery can take up to 4-7 days.
Your optometrist will be able to advise you on the best course of action.Back
