What other restrictions are there after laser vision correction?

On the day of the laser vision correction procedure, it is recommended that patients keep both eyes closed and rest or sleep for the first few hours. Patients can shower or bathe the day after surgery but should avoid getting soap or water in their eyes, and swimming is not recommended for the first week unless watertight goggles are worn. Also, patients should avoid rubbing or bumping the eyes and contact sports for the first few weeks after laser vision correction surgery.
