DXD Admin from Singapore asked a question

How long does it take before I can resume exercising after LASIK?

Dear Dr Ethan,

I read about your experience @ EEC (Mount Alvernia) for LASIK. Thank you so much for sharing, it was useful and allowed me to gain some insight as to how the op went!

I have an appointment with Dr Theng next week, and I’d like to find out more about the procedure.

I read that the post-op recovery was 3 days, but I was wondering how long it will take to resume exercising? Also, may I know if your night vision is clear?

Can I know how long did you have to use the eye drops post-op?

Thank you so much for your kind help 🙂

Hi Munchkin – I’m glad that you found it helpful.

Yes the post-op is indeed about 2-3 days, after which he will advise that you will be able to return to work as normal.

Exercise wise, the recommendation to be safe that most doctors would advise is about 1 month – I went surfing in Bali after that with no problems. This applies to all sorts of exercises where you may get hit in the eye – ball games, weight lifting, etc. Of course, I’m erring on the side of caution!

Also, may I know if your night vision is clear?

Yes, it is. I did not experience any side effects.

Can I know how long did you have to use the eye drops post-op?

If I remember correctly, I used it about 1-2 weeks after. You can use it for longer if you feel that your eyes are still dry, but my weren’t.

Cheers
