When can I exercise after LASIK?

We tell patients that any activity after LASIK has to take into consideration mechanical friction. You really want to avoid moving the flap before it heals really well (2-3 days). You also want to avoid dislodging the contact lens placed in your eye after PRK/LASEK. So, it is ok to exercise 2-3 days later as long as you are self-aware and do not rub your eyes by mistake.
