    During the first few weeks after lasik surgery, you mustn't do all types of eye makeup and lotions around the eye area and swimming should be avoided. In fact, you cannot do all physical sports for at least a month after surgery.What's more, you should wear dark glasses to block the bright lights.

    Don't overuse your eyes and limit the time of watching TV or playing computer.

    It is important to adhere to the antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops regime prescribed by your doctor following the procedure to prevent bacteria infection and to moderate the healing response. Also avoid crowded and dusty places for the first three days. Remember to keep the eyes well lubricated to relieve the temporary dryness of the eyes that occur after treatment.A protective eye shield should be worn when sleeping for the first week to prevent rubbing and accidental trauma to the eye. You should be careful not to squeeze the eyelids hard and not to drive for the first 24 hours after the procedure.
