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.
