LASIK Recovery Time 2-3 Months after LASIK. It is common for the eyes to continue to heal for at least 3 months after LASIK, which means your vision will also continue to improve. In patients with more severe prescriptions, their eyes can continue to heal for up to 6 months.

There are two main parts to LASIK eye surgery: creating the flap and reshaping the cornea. To create the flap, the doctor will use a suction device. After the surgery, there will be discomfort for about 10-12 hours. The discomfort is due to the healing process. Similar to how a scab itches when its healing and how a cough develops when you are clearing out a head cold, there’s some irritation during the very first few hours of healing. This irritation goes away as the eyes heal.
