Brief Answer:
Smoking hookah should be avoided.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr Dadapeer k an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.
I reviewed your history.

You can watch TV after cross linking surgery.
But smoking hookah or smoking in any form needs to be avoided as healing will be delayed because of these.
It needs atleast 6-8 weeks for complete healing of the corneal tissue following any surgery.

Hence smoking hookah needs to be avoided for 8 weeks.


Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
With regards
