WHAT TO EXPECT

  • It is normal to have blurred vision and possibly double vision during the first few weeks following your surgery. Your vision will improve week by week. Occasionally, you will see a floating black spot in your vision. Glasses, if needed, are generally prescribed after one month.
  • PAIN MEDICATIONS – You may use what you have at home for a headache (Tylenol, Aspirin, Aleve, etc.) or you may fill the Ultram prescription given and take one to two (1-2) every four (4) hours as needed for pain.
  • Continue all eye drops and other medications as before surgery unless otherwise instructed.
  • Call the office for pain, redness, worsening vision, black spots constantly in your vision, flashes of light or problems. A little scratchy feeling in the eye is normal.
  • Be careful not to rub or get hit in your eye.
  • You may resume normal activities (work, walking, TV, etc.) as you feel comfortable doing so the day after surgery except for heavy lifting and/or straining.
  • DO NOT Pick up anything over 25 pounds for 2 days.
  • You may wear sunglasses as needed for increased light sensitivity is often noticed.
  • You must wear an eye shield for only the first night after surgery, unless you are likely to rub your eye.
