In brief: Follow directions

Before your procedure, your lasik doctor should have gone over post-operative precuations with you.
Some include not getting dirt, water (or your fingers!) in your eyes, using your eye drops as directed, and keeping your post-op appointments. If you have any questions about what you can and cannot do, please call the surgeon's office to go over the directions with him/her.

The most important thing after lasik is to avoid rubbing your eyes for one week.
Also apply moisture drops liberally.
