In brief: Ordinary caution

Lasik surgery creates a flap which is somewhat weakly attached to the eye for a while.
Use the eyedrops prescribed and avoid rubbing or manipulating the eye. Do not swim without goggles and ask your surgeon about flying. After three weeks or so in most cases, there is no more cause for concern.
