    After lasik surgery, you should wait for 6 months so that your eyes have enough time to heal. Once your eyes are healed, you can visit your optometrist and let him check your eyes to see whether your eyes can wear contacts or not. Then take your doctor's advice.

    You can wear them as long as your eyes are in good condition.But usually you should wait several months when your cornea is completely recovered and your vision stabilize.

    For your question, I advise you to wear contacts after your eyes are completely recovered. And that will take you for about two weeks in normal circumstances. Make sure you check with your doctor for approval to wear contacts after LASIK. In addition, I suggest you not wearing contacts for a long time, because the Oxygen permeability of the contacts is not so good.

    It depends on your eyes status after the surgery. You can go to see your opticials and ask them to check it for you see your optician and get them to check it to see if it is still available for contact lenses.

    It's better for you not to wear colored congtacts .Of cause,it's not because you got the surgery.The reason is that it is necessary for you to avoid infection.Colored congtacts are harmful for your eyes.After the surgery,you will get thinner corneas so that your eyes need to be protected more carefully.If it is a must for you to wear that,you should contact with your doctor before you wear that.I wish that my answer can help you .

    In fact,wearing contacts after a lasik surgery is not a good idea unless get optometrist's permission.After 1 year,the doctor give you an assurence that you have no Cataract,even Glaucoma.then clear your contacts and obverse whether your eyes can adapt contacts.In this process,pay attention to personal hygiene.

    You'd better have them examined before you wear contacts.If the doctor says your vision are perfect and there is no problem wearing them,then you can.

    You'd better not wear contacts whether you have lasik surgery or not. Contacts will do no good to your eye health.

    The proposal had better not wear contacts on account of the scar left on your eyes after the surgery, which amount to unhealthy factors to your eyes. In addition, to the greatest extent, don't wear contacts in that you are not shortsightedness. After all, contacts are not as good as we hope. Nevertheless, you can wear once or twice in case of special needs. But you should remember not to wear too long.

    First, you should measure your corneal curvature radius whether it is suitable for wear the contact. After three years, you don't have to worry about the union of your corneal scar. What you have to worry about is that your eyes could be very dry after the surgery, so wearing contacts will make your eyes feel much drier. If you are suitable for wearing contacts, I also suggest that you should only wear it only it is necessary.

    After your lasik surgery, I believe you can't wear contacts right now! Due to hurting your corneal in the OPS,the corneal wound healing was evaluated postoperatively after 4and 6 weeks. especially, New MX is not impermeability, but also has thickness lens.these reasons will cause you corneitis and eyssight rebound.it is bad !

    No. Don't. Contact lenses exacerbate dry eyes. Lasik causes severe dry eyes. You are just making the matter worse.
