A: You may feel mild discomfort for a few days, which you can alleviate with a pain reliever. Swelling/bruising varies per individual case, with bruising healing in seven to ten days post-surgery. Other recovery symptoms include:
- Red/bumpy incision
- Blurred vision
- Light sensitivity
- Excess tearing or dryness
- Tired eyes
Tips to promote a healthy recovery:
- Avoid makeup application until one week post-surgery.
- Do not wear contact lenses for a week post-surgery.
- Wear dark sunglasses for eye protection for the first few weeks.
