Ok activities???

Postby dharma1979 » Tue Nov 18, 2008 1:30 am

I just had Lasik done on Saturday 11/15 and want to know a few things about post-activity. First, I workout at least 3 days a week doing Crossfit, basically push-ups, pull-ups, and some weight lifting. So I want to know when I can resume that. Second, I am going on a cruise on 11/22 to Mexico and want to swim but have read that I shouldn't...what if I wear goggles? Would appreciate any advice. thanks.

I would take it easy for a couple of weeks.

My doctor have specific intructions on daily activity after surgery.
No exercise for 2 weeks. No swimming for 1 months.

The weight lifiting can raise the pressure inside the eye. This intraocular pressure can also be raised by some of the medications commonly prescribed after laser vision correction. Check with your doctor.
