If all is okay with surgery then commerical airline flights should be fine almost immediately. The air in a plane is recycled and air conditioned, which will likely cause dehydration. Be sure to carry along preservative-free artifical tears to keep your eyes moist.

Of course verify that it is okay to fly with your doctor before departure.
