Frequently asked questions about #lasik #LaserEyeSurgery

Q 1: How soon will I be able to drive after laser eye surgery?

It is recommended that you don't drive for at least a day after your surgery if you have LASIK and up to 5 days after LASEK, until you are seen and your vision is confirmed by the surgeon. The simple guidance on this is that you shouldn't drive until you are comfortable to do so and you are able to see a number plate clearly at a distance of 20.5 meters. Caution is required until your vision is confirmed and documented by the doctor as insurance companies may not cover you in the event of an accident unless you can prove that you could see well.
