    Of course not, you are not supposed to smoke weed after the surgery for smoking weed will make your eyes worse. And also it can lead to many eye diseases. First, you should know that after the Lasik surgery, your eyes will become more sensitive and fragile, so it will be easy for your eyes to be infected. Definitely, smoking weed can make your eyes infected easily. By smoking weed, it will also lead to some eyes diseases, such as pink eyes and watery eyes. And, that will slow down the healing progress. Maybe you can put cucumbers on your eyes and do not smoke weed. Besides, for long term effects, it can lead to lazy eyes, and hearing loss. As we know that by smoking, it can produce cyanide which is a retinal toxin. And according to some research, Smokers may develop toxic amblyopic problem. And also, it can degrade the night vision. So it can be kind of dangerous.

    If you want to keep your eyes health and help the eye heal after lasik surgery, you'd better not smoke. Usually, some doctor will recommend you not smoke about 7-10 days after the lasik surgery. Personally, you'd better quit smoke even if you are heal from lasik surgery. Because smoke is bad for our healthy not only our eyes but also our liver. If you want to keep healthy, quit smoking can help you a lot.

    No, it isn't safe to smoke weed after lasik surgery. After lasik surgery, your ectocornea are cut open. So eyes are sensitive to smoke and smoke can make your eyes infection as well. However if you really want to, you can smoke weed at least two weeks later after laisk surgery. After lasik surgery, you must pay attention to many things. You can't eat spicy food and do intense exercise. You should avoid rub your eyes and wear sunglasses when you go somewhere with strong light. Go to check your eyes regularly.

    No, certainly not. You must not have any excitant things such as weed, alcohol, spicy food. The first month after the lasik surgery is the most important time and you should be careful to take care of your eyes. The main points are as follows. Don't do any strenuous exercise or rub your eyes. Avoid dirty water or shampoo splash into your eyes. Not to swim in the flowing half a year. You should wear sunglasses when you go out by day. In addition, remember to use eye drops according to your doctor's orders and don't forget to go to the hospital to review regularly.
