Lasik Surgery Activity Schedule

Recommended Activity Schedule Following Uncomplicated Bilateral Lasik Surgery
at our Beverly Hills or other California Offices

Day of LASIK Surgery

  • The day of Lasik surgery should be a day of rest. Upon leaving our Los Angeles LASIK surgery office, continue to wear the eye shields until the morning after surgery; remove them when you wake.
  • Always be very careful about activities where the eye may be poked, rubbed or touched.
  • Always avoid squeezing or rubbing eyes. (Rubbing is never a good idea – instead, use lubricant drops for irritation).
  • Avoid staring without lubricating the eyes. Avoid reading and staring at the computer(Music on MP3).

“No more headaches from glasses – not spending 15 to 20 minutes putting in contacts. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Khanna to anyone.”*
