Laser Eye Surgery: Post-Operation Tips and Reminders

Please Share

Research at vision institutes on corrective eye treatments has certainly gone a long way. Nowadays, people have various options in correcting their eye problems and conditions such as laser eye surgery (translated in Spanish as "cirugia laser para ojos"). Although you have decided to undergo one of these advanced procedures, it does not mean that you will not do anything else to ensure your clear and almost perfect vision. After your laser eye surgery, below are some of the reminders and guidelines to live by.

Post-Operation Tips and Reminders 

Never miss an appointment with your eye surgeon. In case you experience severe pain or worsening, instead of improving vision, quickly see your doctor rather than wait for your appointment schedule. According to WebMD, you must not take shower or even wash your hair until a day after the surgery. When you could finally take a bath or wash your hair, make sure that no soap gets in your eyes. While your eyes are still healing, you should also not let any product like hair spray or shaving cologne get in your eyes. Even if you feel like you want to rub your eyes, never do so for at least one month. You should actually not do anything that could make the eyes uncomfortable or stressed out such as driving. You may only drive once the doctor gives approval.

You would likely receive a post-operative kit that includes eye shield or goggles. Make sure you wear them when sleeping especially during the first seven nights after the surgery.
