Even the tissue that has been cut during the LASIK is a very thin tissue, you can get infection.

To prevent this your eye surgeon should have already given you antibiotic drops, however, you should also be cautious.

At Blumeditravel's Lasik surgery booklet which they give to patients, they recommend to:

* not to wash the face (1st day)

* not to have a shower (1st day)

* No Bath, sauna for 3 weeks.

* No swimming for 3 weeks, later swimming with goggles...
