The miraculous thing about laser eye surgery is that healing time is extremely quick—3 to 5 days. However, during the healing period (particularly 3 days post-surgery) you will need to take time off work due to the fact that you won’t be able to drive. Typically, vision will be blurry for a few days following surgery. Your eyes will also burn and be sensitive to light and it will feel uncomfortable to have them open for lengthy periods of time (so take this time to snuggle with your favorite person–or better yet: your favorite pet!).
