Post-Operative Care - LASIK Eye Surgery Portland, Seattle, Spokane, Boise, Bend
Restore Vision Centers
Even though the risks and side effects of laser eye surgery are minimal, we recommend our patients follow a number of steps after the procedure to ensure the best recovery possible.
LASIK and PRK patients will be given anti-inflammatory eye drops, which need to be used according to the directions given. A prescription for Vigamox, an antibiotic eye drop, will be provided and needs to be filled before or immediately after surgery. Additionally, a starter packet of lubricating eye drops (artificial tears), goggles for sleeping, and extra-dark sunglasses are included in your after-care kit.
Recovery from LASIK and PRK is quick and has very little impact on your lifestyle. Immediately following laser eye surgery, there are a number of things you should refrain from doing. Do not vigorously rub your eyes. Wear good quality sunglasses. No eyeliner or mascara may be used for two weeks following the procedure. Swimming, pools, hot tubs, racquet sports and tanning booths should be avoided for a period of time. Wear protective eyewear for yard work.
