Can you wear makeup before and after laser eye surgery?

We recommend that no makeup is worn on the day of surgery, as this may possibly interfere with the laser vision correction process.

Similarly, after surgery, caution should be taken to minimise the amount of eye makeup worn, certainly in the first few postoperative days.

However, it is very likely that a short time after laser vision correction, you’ll be able to return to normal makeup wear.

If you’re considering having laser refractive surgery, then I’d encourage you to book a free appointment either by dialling the number below or online.

Your free assessment is the first step in determining your suitability for laser refractive surgery, and it is incredibly important that this is done thoroughly and accurately to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for surgery and that we will achieve the best results.

It’s a great journey and the results will be truly amazing, but first, we need to find out your suitability. I encourage you to book a free assessment.
