Most LASIK patients experience dramatic improvement in their pre-surgery eyesight within 24 hours of the surgery. After that, the improvements continue at a more modest pace. It may be six to eight weeks before you experience the full "custom" effect of the surgery. You may even find that after the custom surgery, you are able to see better than you could with your old glasses or contact lenses.
Otherwise, the recovery from custom LASIK is the same as for standard LASIK surgery. Patients will need someone to drive them home, and will need to wear a protective shield for 1 to 3 days, but should experience little discomfort after the first few hours.
