In brief: When comfortable
There is no need to refrain from using the eyes after laser vision correction surgery, unless the surgeon specifically tells you.
You my resume reading, driving and using your eyes for all your tasks as soon as you feel comfortable doing so. You can get back to most of your activities within 1 or 2 days. Ask your surgeon if you have any specific restrictions.

In brief: Yes
Yes, reading and computer work are ok.
These activities can lead to dryness of the eyes. Artificial tears and increasing blinking during these and other focused activities can help.
