Following Up After Surgery: How Important Is It?

With any type of surgery, including LASIK eye surgery, it is important to always follow up with the doctor after surgery is completed. In most cases, doctors will want to see you within 24 hours of your completed surgery. Most likely with LASIK, your doctor will want to see you for two more visits after this first appointment.

Even if you are recovering nicely, it is important for the doctor to check your eyes for proper healing and to ensure that there is no infection. Following up with your doctor and making sure that you are present at all appointments after the surgery is important to proper healing.
