    No, you can't drink alcohol after lasik surgery. You can drink at least three months later after lasik surgery. In a week, you should avoid splashing soapsuds or shampoo into your eyes. In a month, you can't rub your eyes, swim and smoke. You should give up bad habits such as reading books in the weak light and so on. You shouldn't eat spicy food and eat more vegetable and fruit.

    Of course not, you are not supposed to drink alcohol in the first 24 hours after surgery. First, it is well known by many people that alcohol is not good for your body even when you are health. And when you have alcohol after the eye surgery, it will irritate your eyes and make the situation worse. So you should be careful. After the eye surgery, there are also many tips you should pay attention to. For example, you should avoid eye injuries by wearing a protective shield at night and with naps until you are advised by your doctor. Also, you should remember not sleep on the side of the operated eye for the first night. And, you may not be supposed to do some exercises after the surgery, it can be very dangerous. Maybe you can surf on the internet to look for more information so that you can protect your eyes in a good ways.

    No, you must be away from any excitant food or drink in the first month after lasik surgery. Drinking alcohol or having spicy food is not allowed. And you would better not drink much alcohol even after the first month. Besides, there are some important points you should pay attention to. First and foremost, you should avoid the water splashes into your eyes when you wash your face or takes a bath or the dirty water may result in infection. Then, watching TV or playing computer is not allowed either. What's more, when you go out or stay in high intensity of lighting condition, you should wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
