Today: Buy +1.25 or +1.00 over-the-counter glasses. This works well for computer use.

Within 1 week: Assuming your lasik surgery went well, you can go out and get computer glasses. If you are concerned your prescription might still change, get a temporary pair of over-the-counter glasses to start you off.
