When can I go back to work/study after laser eye surgery?
This depends on the type of work you do. Most people can go back to work the next day after treatment. A few hours after the treatment, the uncomfortable feeling is already gone. You can see clearly enough to be able to work.
Have you had a TransPRK treatment? Then the recovery takes a little longer because the front of the eye has to recover first. You also have a bandage lens (a type of contact lens) on your eye. You will return to the clinic after a few days to have the bandage lens removed. Therefore, it can take up to 1 week before you can go back to work.
Although you can go back to work relatively quickly after a treatment, your eyes need more time to fully recover. The eye must stabilize, this can sometimes take a few weeks to six months. Visibility will continue to improve during this time.
We advise people to take it easy. A busy period with exams or deadlines for work immediately after the treatment is not advisable.
