Travel after Lasik
I am getting LASIK done after 2 days. But I will be going on vacation 9 days after the surgery. Is it safe to travel then and will I be completely healed before that. Moreover when will I be able to wash my hair, face and apply eye makeup?

Avoid swimming in dirty water. Avoid rubbing eyes. Avoid eyes from trauma. Risky travel. Better avoid it if not compulsory. You can do make up , face wash & hair wash after few days after surgery.
