Can I Go On Holiday Shortly After Having Laser Eye Surgery?
If you plan on going on holiday by car shortly after having Laser Eye Surgery you should remember that you will probably have to wait until your first day after surgery to drive. 98% of our patients are up to legal driving standard or better at that time. We tend to ask patients to take one day off – the day after their surgery, to reside in a relaxed environment and take time to adjust to their new vision and get used to placing the lubricant drops in their eyes.
“There is no reason you shouldn’t go on holiday immediately after Laser Eye Surgery. However, we would like to know when and where you are going because we want to look after your eyes after surgery and this information is useful for us to ensure your post-operative care has been addressed properly.”
Lead Optometrist Alexandra Lyons explains the conditions under which you can still go on holiday immediately after Laser Eye Surgery.
