Avoid any activity that involves excessive sweating in the first few days after surgery. Don’t strain your eyes or do anything to make your eyes dry. Avoid contact sports like martial arts, rugby and swimming in the first couple of weeks.
Keep the sweat out of your eyes. It may lead you to rub your eyes – and you want to avoid rubbing your eyes soon after LASIK surgery.
Within a few days after surgery, our patients can enjoy bicycling and golfing again. After that, they can return to their exercise routines, life weights and workouts.
As a precaution, you may want to wear eye protection in the first week. This is especially important in sports like racquetball or squash. Getting a ball in your eye may cause trauma during the healing process.
A month after LASIK, you can do scuba diving, skiing and snowboarding. After that, continue to follow general eye care advice.
