    Of course not, you are not supposed to play computer after prk surgery. As we know that if you play computer after surgery, it will make your eyes become worse. When you watch computer, you have to make your sensitive eyes to focus on the point and that will lead to eye strain. And in some cases, it can be dangerous. So you should follow the things the doctor has told you. Besides, 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.

    You are not recommend to use computers if you want to help your eyes recovery soon. In fact, it is need longer time to recover from PRK surgery than it needs from LASIK. And the big problems after PRk surgery is dry eyes. If you use computer, it will make your dry eyes even more serious. So, for the sake of your eyes, you'd better not use computer or watching TV after PRK surgery till your eyes recovery.

    Since the light on the screen may stimulate your eyes, you'd better not use computer or watch TV unless it's a long time after the Prk surgery. I advise you not to use any electronic products like these in the first month after the Prk surgery. Besides, there are another three main points you should pay attention to. Firstly, if the weather is sunshine, you must wear a pair of sunglasses when you go out. Secondly, you should avoid excess use of your eyes. That means not to stare at objects for a long time such as keeping reading books without a rest. Thirdly, you are not allowed to have spicy or rich food on account of that they will do harm to your eyes.

    You should not use the computer after the prk surgery because the strong lights from the screen on the computer may stimulate your eyes. This will affect your recovery from the normal vision. You’d better wait for a month. After the basic recovery of the eyes, you could use the computer for a little while every day.
