How long can I have a diving after a lasik surgery?

I have a diving trip planned from the 22nd to 26th of January. If I were to do lasik procedure now, will I be able to make this trip? I'm quite confused because certain information given to me states that after 2 weeks, water activities may be resumed while some state that 4 weeks of rest is required before resuming any water activities. Kindly advise. Thank you.

    Regarding to your problem, I recommend waiting for 4 weeks after Lasik before diving. This is to ensure that the cornea has fully healed and to prevent any risk of infection.

    Diving after LASIK is fine as long as you are post-op for at least two weeks, and if diving an a pond or a place where the water is stagnet (lots of bacteria, don't let the water get in your eyes at least a month out. If your eyes are feeling dry at any time use an artificail tear (presertive free) such as Thera Tears of Refresh Plus. I hope you are enjoying your new vision
