Laser eye surgery

Question:
I have a question about eye surgery.
Is there any difference in waiting time before returning to diving when the laser eye surgery is done by PRK-METHOD?

Answer:
In general laser corneal surgery is considered to require a return-to-dive interval ranging from 2 until 4 weeks, depending on the type of surgery, Lasik techniques being the ones requiring less time.
Surgical radial keratotomy interventions require a longer interval, generally not less than 3 months.
There is no known permanent contraindication to resuming diving when clinical complete healing is achieved after non complicated eye surgery performed with such methods, unless other conditions, ocular or general, may be present.
