What can you not do after Eye Surgery?

Eye surgeries are usually painless, quick and does not require full sedation like other surgical operations. The patient usually walks out of the hospital within the same day of the operation and can resume most daily routines.

On the other hand, there are some key points to keep in mind. Most eye surgeries need eye drops that makes vision blurry for a couple of hours. You cannot see clearly and should not be driving. A accompany or a chaperone should be driving or taking you out of the hospital after the procedure. As the patient, you will not be able to see your phone clearly until the effect of the drops wear off and your eyes are rested. Direct exposure to light is not advised so the hospital will provide you with glasses to protect your eyes from bright light. You will be advised to use sunglasses for the following days/weeks to prevent any disturbances.

The blurry vision is common, especially after common procedures like laser surgery or cataract. It takes a couple of days for the eyes to adjust and heal and it is important to use eye drops regularly during that period. Patients should not touch or scratch their eyes, be careful while using shampoo and avoid dust-like particles entering the eye.

After eye surgeries, surgeons expect to see the patients for a follow-up appointment the next day. Your eye surgeon will tell you what is normal and not for your specific eye operation but typically, the vision is cleared within a few hours and the discomfort in the eyes wear off in a couple of days. It is important to keep the eyes clean, not touch the eyes (since they are like open wounds) and rest the eyes – avoid using screen time.

What is the best age to get Laser Eye Surgery?

The eye is a changing and evolving organ. If a person is far-sighted or near-sighted; their prescription changes over the years. Especially during puberty, the eye glasses used changes more often. There is not a “defined best age” to get laser eye surgery.

Lasik is not approved for people under 18 years in many countries unless there is an emergency. It is most commonly performed between ages 20 and 40 but advised by ophthalmologists after mid-twenties; once the eye prescription is stable for a few years.

There are few determining factors to have laser eye surgery. The cornea of the person should be suitable. The eyes should be in a good condition, not too dry from using too much contact lenses. The eye prescription should not be too low or too high. Your surgeon would inform you about the suitability of your eye but it is a very common procedure with very high success rates.

Key is to wait until your eye stabilizes at a certain degree, preferably 2 years. The second half of twenties are commonly preferred before the eyes start to change around 40. People with older age prefer mono-or-tri focal lenses where a lens is inserted into the eye and frees the patient from all eye-glasses.

How long is recovery after from Eye Surgery?

There are different types of eye surgery. The procedures differ as well as the recovery times. There are very simple procedures such as laser eye surgery or cataract where the patient is “outpatient” which means they walk in and out of the hospital within the same day. Laser or cataract procedures take about 15 minutes and they are treated in half a day. When that is the case, there are a couple of eye drops to use for the following days and weeks but the recovery is much shorter than other eye surgeries.

Glaucoma, commonly known as eye pressure is also very common and easily treated but has a longer recovery period. After a certain age, one starts to use reading glasses and usually has trouble seeing far distances. When astigmatism comes on top of myopia and hyper myopia, the use of eye-glasses really affects the life quality. Tri-focal lens insertions frees patients from all glasses and has a very short recovery period. The regular uses of eye drops are crucial for the healing process but thinking about getting rid of all glasses, what are a few drops every now and then?

There are so many types of other eye surgeries from vitrectomy to bionic eye, from the fixing of eye muscles to correct cross-eyes to heal lazy eyes; it is hard and not advisable to generalize recovery periods. The technology has improved so much in the last years and effected eye treatments so immensely that it takes usually couple of hours in the hospital to complete most eye treatments and cure vision-related problems. The most important aspect is being punctual at eye drops and watch out for dust-like small particles.
