After laser vision correction surgery
– What to expect
Finally, your future with clearer eyesight is here
Now that you have experienced laser vision correction for yourself, it is important to take care of your eyes in order to maximize the benefits of the surgery.
Although you can expect your healing time to be relatively fast, eye care professionals usually suggest taking a few days off of work so that you can rest your eyes and allow them to heal properly.
There are some other basic care instructions that you should follow after having laser vision correction.

Your eyesight will fluctuate
Many people have the false impression that perfect vision will be restored immediately after having the procedure.
While your eyes are healing it is completely normal to experience some blurred vision.
In most cases, the blurriness will improve substantially by the day after the procedure.
When you return to the office for your post-operative exam, you should see a marked improvement in the amount of blurriness you are experiencing.
You should arrange for a driver to bring you to your first post-operative appointment as you may have some lingering blurriness or trouble focusing your eyes properly.
You might experience a small degree of discomfort
There is sometimes a small degree of discomfort involved during or after the procedure; however, some patients may experience a mild burning sensation for a few hours after the procedure.
It is crucial to refrain from rubbing your eyes. If the stinging sensation has become too uncomfortable, your doctor may be able to prescribe some medication to ease your discomfort.
Remember, the goal of Clearview Institute is to keep our patients as comfortable as possible before, during, and after your laser vision correction procedure.
