    Well, generally speaking, you'd better not go to have surfing in the first two weeks after the surgery. While by having the surgery, it definitely can improve your vision, but you should know that it will take some time for them to recover. So in this special period, you should be careful about your eyes. As we know that when you go surfing, your eyes will be moistened by the sea water. And the sea water is salty, so it can hurt your eyes. At the same time, it can also infect your eyes because of the viruses which invaded in your eyes. Even after the first two weeks, I will suggest you should pay more attention to your eyes, so that you can not get hurt or have infection by it. Since the eyes after surgery are very sensitive and fragile, you should take some measures to avoid the infection. 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.

    Many people use the lasik surgery to get rid of the use of eyeglasses, helping you get the right vision. The myopia laser surgery is also called the excimer laser surgery. With excimer laser corneal flap based on the matrix of phototropism cutting, it can thereby reduce the pupil corneal curvature to get the purpose of correction of myopia. However, after the lasik surgery, you'd better protect the eyes carefully. You should not use the computer for a long time. And you'd better not eat the spicy food. And you'd better have a eye check at the regular time. However, you could not surf after the lasik surgery because the water contains the bacterium which may let your eyes get infection. You could wait for a month for its basic recovery. At that time, you could also wear the swimming goggles which will protect your eyes from getting the coming bacterium.
