Lasik-MDs official site says 3 days after surgery if wearing protection, but the lady on the phone said that was optimistic. I don't think there'd be anything wrong with going out to cruise around in some powder if we got a dump a few days after my surgery. I'd probably want to stay out of the trees and calm my groomer bombing tendencies however!

Thanks for the non-official (I won't sue you) info!
Haha no worries. The primary concern with any surgery really is to give your surgery site a chance to heal before you go bumping it around. I'd also be a bit more concerned about being a bit more sensitive to UV, lights and so on and so forth right after surgery. But really, I'd say to listen to your body and just be careful with making sure you don't crash into things. Duh.
