How long will it take to recover after LASIK?

How long will it take to recover after LASIK? Immediately after surgery, you should plan to rest your eyes for 6-12 hours. Consider taking a nap. The day after surgery most patients will see clearly, others may take 2- 5 days to recover. You will have follow-up appointments at one week and six weeks with your ophthalmologist to assess your vision and healing. Complete recovery takes about 3 to 6 months, within this period your vision might fluctuate a bit. You may also experience dryness that should improve. Healing is different for each patient. There is no set timeline for recovery.
