    You will have to wait for the eyes' complete recovery after the laser eye surgery and go back to the work again. Usually you will have to wait for about three months. However, your work is related with computer. You should set the time to have the rest for the eyes. You should have the check on the eyes at regular time.

    Well, generally speaking, it will take about 3 months for your eyes to recover. At this period, you are supposed to watch tv or computer frequently. So you should notice this. Also, after the surgery, there are many things you should pay more attention to it. For example, you should not overuse your eyes, or it can lead to eye strain in your eyes. And then, that can slow down the speed of recovery. Also, do not make your eyes infected. And eye infection will just make your situation more serious. By the way, some heavy exercise, driving, swimming should be avoided.

    As a matter of fact, there are different situations varying person to person. But you have to observe several tips as below if you want to get recovery quickly after a laser eye surgery. Above all, you must wear a pair of quality sunglasses to protect your eyes from the radiation and sunlight when you are outside. Secondly, in the first 48 hours after laser eye surgery, you are supposed to relax and rest your eyes as much as possible. Thirdly, you'd better not do some fierce exercise especially of swimming for about a month after laser eye surgery. And when you take a bath, do prevent the water or any soap getting into your eyes. Finally, take some eye examines after the laser eye surgery. If you follow above tips, you can go back to work after one to three weeks at most. Thanks for consulting.
