Can I talk to a patient who has had Laser Eye Surgery?

It doesn’t matter how many people have had Laser Eye Surgery in the past, there’s always new questions being asked: “Can I do a presentation straight after the surgery?” “What happens if I get cramp during the procedure?” “I know I’m not supposed to wear perfume on the day, but what about Chanel?” Sometimes they can be answered with a simple yes or no, other times they require a little more explaining.
