In brief: Best vision

You will know fairly quickly after surgery that your vision has improved, but it takes up to four weeks or longer to get your final best vision.

In brief: Postop vision

Vision should be stable by 1-2 weeks but glasses prescription usually checked at 1 month since it can fluctuate early on.

In brief: Usually 1 month

Although visual recovery may occur sooner we usually give patients a month to achieve full visual recovery.
