It depends on the kind of work you do, but most patients can return within 24 hours. We ask that you stay out of dusty and/or smoky environments for at least one week. We ask you to stay out of the pool for at least one week and avoid water sports for one month, goggles should be worn for another month after that. Protective eyewear should be worn for any sport in which you may make contact with your eye. We have treated many elite athletes and there is no reason not to get back to normal exercise the day after your procedure.
