Driving Post Lasik Eye Surgery
Are you worried that you will have to use public transportation after your Lasik eye surgery? Are you afraid that you will need to ride with someone else to and from work after your procedure? Our experts give you the low-down on Lasik surgery recovery including how long it takes to get back to driving post-Lasik.
Most people are back behind the wheel a day or two after Lasik surgery
Typically, Lasik surgery patients are back on their feet and out the door within a short day or so after their procedure. While some cases call for an extra day, it is often at your 24-hour check that you are cleared to go to work and drive wherever you need to go. Your first post-operative check-up gives the surgeon the chance to check out the cornea and see if you are healing correctly. He or she will advise you where to go from there.
