LASEK/PRK Post Procedure Care Instructions

Precautions: Day of Procedure

For the first 2 days following your surgery, you may continue experiencing some discomfort, tearing as well as irritation/stinging/burning/light sensitivity. We recommend getting plenty of rest. You may also wear your sunglasses indoors to help with the light sensitivity during this period. This will help speed up the healing process.
