    It depends on how long you have taken for the eye surgery. In the first few days after the surgery, you had better not watch TV because it could easy lead to eyestrain, thus influence the effective of the surgery. And it is not easy for part patients to see objects nearby and far away due to the surgery, you need eyeglasses with low prescription to read articles. However, it is a common situation that would happen after the surgery. If you have taken this surgery more than one week, you can watch TV for a certain period, and take frequent break to avoid causing fatigue of eyes.
