How do I prepare for eye surgery?

Preparation instructions vary by procedure, but generally include avoiding certain medications and not wearing contact lenses, usually a week before the surgery. Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure, as you won’t be able to drive immediately. 


What is the post-eye surgery care?

Do not wear make-up the days after the surgery. Rest and avoid strenuous activities. Use prescribed eye drops to prevent infection and reduce inflammation. Wear sunglasses when going outside. Keep the eye area clean – avoid touching or rubbing your eye. Attend your follow-up appointment to monitor healing.

Avoid swimming and dusty environments at least 7 days after the surgery. Report any unusual pain, vision changes, or discharge to your doctor immediately.


What should I do after I have an eye surgery? What is the follow-up?

Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments. These appointments allow your doctor to monitor the healing process, check for complications, and adjust medications if necessary.
