Lasik surgery

We get quite a bit of questions from our LASIK patients and prospective LASIK patients that we enjoy answering.  Some just come up A LOT so we thought it would be helpful to answer those really, really frequent questions in some mini blogs.

So let’s start with…

If I have Lasik, when can I go back to the gym?

There is a pretty short answer to this question.

With regard to exercise – there are two main goals after LASIK:

  • Do NOT get any sweat in your eyes for the first week, and
  • Avoid anything rubbing or bumping your eyes for the first 4 weeks

A couple other notable notes: Stay away from intense outdoor workouts with sawdust or mud.

Cardio lover? Are you a runner?

We asked Dr.  Bennett Walton and he shared:

“Running outside is fine after a week, probably wear sunglasses to prevent anything from blowing into your eyes.”
