What can I expect 2 days after surgery?

  • Use preservative-free artificial tears every 2-4 hours. You can switch to Theratears brand of tears if you desire after 3 months
  • Shower (but continue to avoid any soap or water in the eyes).
  • You may resume eye make-up.
  • Driving can be resumed if adequate vision is confirmed at postoperative examination.  If you have had only one eye treated, wear your contact lens/glasses while driving and take it slowly.  You may not see as well without good binocular vision.
  • Apply face make-up (but not eye make-up).
  • Use computers (but it is very important to keep eyes well lubricated).
  • Jogging, rollerblading, cycling, golf (mulligans for any shot into the sand trap) may be resumed
