Can I go diving after laser eye surgery?

Published on 3rd November 2011

If you're an avid scuba diver you might want to think about having laser eye surgery. Imagine just being able to put your kit on without worrying about your prescription diving mask.

The main question is how quickly you can get back to diving afterwards. The advice we give is that it is possible to go diving as soon as three - four weeks after laser eye correction. We would always recommend you seek advice directly from your treating surgeon for clarification though as there are always exceptions.


All eye surgical procedures carry a level of risk including not obtaining the desired outcome, through to varying levels of visual loss. Your eye surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits, including ones specific to your circumstances, at the time of your pre-operative consultation.
