How quickly can I go back to work?

This depends on your job and the environment you work in. Office work is usually possible the day after LASIK, and work will not damage your eyes provided that you are able to administer your after care drops on time. Surface laser procedures (PRK, LASEK) typically require a week off work. Implant based procedures (RLE and ICL implantation) usually require about 1-3 days for the vision to stabilise but most patients can drive and return to work after 48 hours.
