LASIK and make up
I generally ask my patients to avoid make-up use for the first week or two. There is very little risk of any problems but it is best to avoid touching the eye unnecessarily.
LASIK or Latisse following LASIK surgery
We generally advise patients to wait at least a week after LASIK before they begin applying makeup or other eye products such as Latisse. Some patients feel more comfortable waiting a little longer and may wait as long as 2 weeks. The eye heals very rapidly and infection are rare for LASIK surgery in general. Most patients cease using antibiotics about a week following LASIK surgery since the cornea is resistive to bacteria by that point. Discuss your specific LASIK surgery...
