Bloomington, Minnesota -
Chu Vision Institute, a premier vision correction center in the Twin Cities area, has recently published a blog post titled, “LASIK Recovery,” by Ralph Chu, MD. The article points out that the LASIK procedure is painless. Patients are offered a mild oral sedative to help them relax and the eyelids are gently held open with a soft separator so there is no need to worry about blinking. The procedure itself takes only a few minutes. Afterward, the patient is taken to the recovery area to relax, after which, Dr. Chu will check the patient’s eyes to ensure everything looks great before heading home. The patient will be given instructions on what to do during recovery and will be provided with eye drops and other supplies.
Dr. Chu says, “One of the many excellent aspects of LASIK surgery is its quick recovery. For both eyes, the actual procedure only takes around 15 minutes. You should expect to spend around an hour and a half in our clinic on the day of your LASIK surgery at Chu Vision Institute, even though the actual procedure is brief..”
The initial recovery period will last around six to 12 hours. This may vary depending on the individual. Some patients may notice that their vision has improved significantly after the procedure while others may need a few days. .
There are a few things that patients can do to help their vision stabilize after the procedure. These include: avoiding rubbing or touching the eyes; limiting screen time and keeping the eyes closed as much as possible on the first day after surgery; following the directions provided by the doctor; wearing sunglasses when going outside; complying with follow-up appointments; and avoiding saunas, hot tubs, swimming, and contact sports for two weeks after the procedure.
Patients can take a shower the day after LASIK, but they should take care not to get soap on their eyes to avoid irritation. They should take all the prescription medication, artificial tears, and lubricating eye drops are prescribed by the doctor, and the best possible advice is to relax and rest for the first 12 to 24 hours after surgery.
