    An eye strain is resulted from the lasting impacts on your eyes as well as overuse of your eyes. Generally speaking, it requires some eye drops and some changes to your living habits,try to comply with what the doctor says and if lucky enough, it would take about one week before you are recovered. Try to give your eyes more rest and have a healthier diet.

Above all, you have to wear a pair of quality sunglasses to protect your eyes from the radiation and sunlight. Secondly, 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 first week after lasik eye surgery. And when you take a bath, do prevent the water or any soap getting into your eyes.
