Lasik eye surgery is a permanent procedure that corrects your vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
When can I get back to work?
You can return to work after 2 days of your surgery, but to avoid dry eyes after Lasik, we recommend usage of artificial tear drops to keep your eyes moisturised, especially if you spend so much time working in front of a pc/laptop screen.
How long does it take?
The surgery takes 10 to 15 minutes for each eye in most types of Lasik. With our device it takes only 4 minutes!
Lasik recovery takes only a few days, but it may take up to three weeks, sometimes longer, for the shape of the cornea to stabilize.

Can I drive after the surgery?
No, you must have someone drive you home after LASIK surgery. Even though your vision may seem quite clear immediately after LASIK, some blurriness is common for several hours after surgery and as the numbing eye drops used during your LASIK procedure wear off after surgery.
It's common for your eyes to be sensitive to light for a few hours, causing them to "water," which will affect your vision.
The best course of action is to have a friend or family member drive you home, and then you can relax or take a nap.
When can I wear makeup?
Normal face make-up, for example lipstick, is fine to use just a day or two after the treatment. It’s only really the makeup that is applied in and around the eyes that needs to be avoided like the plague for at least the first 7 days. During this time it’s most important to avoid wearing the following cosmetics: eyeliner, eye shadow, and mascara. This is mainly to avoid any unwanted fibres or liquids to enter the eye, cause irritation, and affect the eye’s recovery process. What’s more, when you return to wearing eye makeup after the one week period, you must be careful not to rub your eyes when removing it to again avoid any further chance of irritation.
