How should I take care of my eyes the first week after laser eye surgery?
The first night of surgery and the following couple of nights, you’re going to be wearing shields while you go to bed at night to make sure you don’t knock your eyes.
If you’ve had LASIK done, you want to be particularly careful around your eyes. You don’t want to knock them or cause any trauma to your eyes. You should also be very mindful of rubbing them.
The beauty of SMILE’s is that even from the day after surgery, trauma’s not such an issue. If you knock them, okay, it’s not ideal, but it’s also not the end of the world.
Keep should put lubricants in your eyes after laser eye surgery. There are various other drops we give you as well. We give you the medicated drops, which you want to use regularly. We will explain this to you before and after your surgery. You can never over lubricate your eyes. Dryness is a slightly greater issue straight after surgery. The use of lubricants keeps this under control. In fact, even if they’re not even feeling dry, I would still put lubricants in your eyes four times a day or so.
