How long after ReLEx® SMILE® can I start exercising again?

Eye & LASIK

Hello! I'm one week post ReLEx® SMILE®. Vision is okay, but not perfect yet. When can I start going to the gym/running or doing sports like badminton? Other than perspiration getting into eyes, are there any other concerns? Thanks doctors!

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Most patients can resume cycling, jogging, gym and yoga 1 week after ReLEx SMILE.

You are however advised to avoid water sports, hot yoga, jacuzzi and sauna for 1 month as the water is not clean enough.

Also avoid contact sports like boxing, martial arts and badminton for 1 month as we are concerned something or someone may hit your eye.

Do continue to use lubricating eyedrops generously, follow medication instructions and have your eyes reviewed by your eye surgeon in a timely manner. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Hi Chris

Generally, light exercise in clean environments can be resumed 1 week after ReLEx SMILE, as is also the case for other kinds of refractive surgery. This would include light weight training or jogging/cycling. If this is being done outdoors, it would be good to have shades or other eye protection in case of dust or branches by the roadside, etc

Water sports including swimming and contact sports are best avoided for one month. Even if there is no flap in SMILE surgery, it is best to avoid any kind of infection or injury in the early period after surgery.

Instructions and precautions may vary somewhat between clinics, so it would also be good to refer back to the instructions provided by your original doctor.
