How long does recovery from laser eye surgery take?

In general, recovery from laser eye surgery is very quick. Initially, the eyes may be covered using eye pads and the patient may have to wear a mask or sunglasses as the eyes can be very sensitive to light at first. At first, the eyes may appear slightly swollen, red and a bit puffy, but this should wear off after around 48 hours. After LASIK surgery, there may be some tiny red spots on the eye; however these will disappear after around one or two weeks.
