    Of course not, you are not supposed to drink alcohol 24 hours after surgery. As we know that alcohol is not good for your body even when you are health. And when you have alcohol after the eye surgery, it will irritate your eyes and make the situation worse. So you should be careful. After the eye surgery, there are also many tips you should pay attention to. For example, you should avoid eye injuries by wearing a protective shield at night and with naps until you are advised by your doctor. Also, you should remember not sleep on the side of the operated eye for the first night. Maybe you can surf on the internet to look for more information so that you can protect your eyes in a good ways.

    It is said that it will be OK if you drink small or moderate alcohol after the PRK surgery. But you must keep in mind that you can't drinking too much. Usually, excessively drink can lead dehydration which can dry out your eyes and not good for the healing of your eyes after PRK surgery. So, you'd better not or at least drink moderation in order to your eyes health.

    Of course not. In addition, you'd better get away from the spicy food. After the prk surgery, you should protect your eyes carefully. The alcohol contains the irritating things that may stimulate your eye nerves which may not be good for your vision. Thus, you should not drink alcohol and smoke.

    After taking PRK eye surgery, you'd better not drink alcohol and eat pungent food within one month in order to avoid stimulating your eyes and relieve the discomfort. What's more, after taking PRK eye surgery, you need to pay attention to the following notes: 1. When you sleep, you need to wear eyeshade 2. Do not apply cosmetics to ocular region 3. Protect your eyes when you shampoo within one month, do not go swimming within six months and not go diving within a year 4. Watch TV and surf on the Internet within a limited time, not too long, to avoid overusing your eyes 5. Wear sunglasses when you go outside within a month to prevent sand from blowing into eyes.
