What to Expect When You Undergo Surgery on Your Eyes

The purpose of undergoing eye surgery is to help you see the world in a whole new way. Improved vision is exciting and will give you a higher quality of life. The procedure itself is simple and has high success rates. As the patient there are things you should expect when you undergo surgery that will help increase your chances for success and a speedy recovery.

Limitations on Activity

Following surgery, your doctor will recommend activities you can and can’t do during the recovery process. For example, the first few weeks following surgery, you should avoid strenuous activity to limit increased blood pressure and veins in the eyes from bulging and causing further harm. It is also recommended that you limit your screen time as the high energy visible (HEV) light that is omitted will strain your eyes that have not completely healed.

Adverse Reactions and Side Effects

As your eyes heal, it is natural for there to be adverse reactions and side effects. It is completely normal to experience swollen, itchy, or dry eyes. As much as they might bother you, it is crucial that you do not touch your eyes. You can ask your doctor for medications that can help reduce the side effects. They may give you pain reliever to help with the discomfort and lubricating eye drops to give your eyes moisture and relieve the itchy sensation. Using these medications will help relieve some of the discomfort during the healing process and make your recovery process much more pleasant.

Change in Vision

Obviously, you undergo eye surgery to help improve your vision. Following surgery however, there are multiple changes to your vision you will experience. Directly following the procedure, you may feel like your vision is foggy and sensitive to light. Your eyes will adjust and see much better a few hours following surgery.

As they heal you will discover your eyesight much clearer than you are used to. Some patients experience headaches because they are not used to seeing so clearly. This will go away as your eyes adjust and become used to seeing the world in a better light.

Corrective eye surgery is an investment. Do not hesitate to reach out to your physician with any questions or concerns you have during the recovery process. Knowing what to expect and following their instructions will optimize your results.
