After Care

After Care

Immediately after surgery you may notice that your eye is slightly red and your vision may be a little foggy.

During recovery, avoid:

  • rubbing your eye
  • swimming for at least a week (and try to keep water out of your eye while bathing)
  • eye makeup and eye creams/moisturisers for a week
  • straining, heavy lifting or strenuous activity for several days
  • activities that could injure your eye such as contact sports for 6 weeks
  • exposing your eye to dust and wind during the first few weeks.
