staying out of the pool?

I generally swim a mile two or three times a week. How long after the procedure do I need to stay out of the pool? Can wearing googles injury my eye while it's healing?

We have a detailed article about Lasik and swimming that indicates 2-3 weeks of healing or more is needed before swimming after Lasik, with different durations for different procedures.
