: No pressing or rubbing the eye for 8 weeks. Wear the eye shield while sleeping for at least
6-12 weeks. You must wear full time eye protection for the first 2-3 months and under any circumstance
where you may get struck in the eye (small children, pets, etc.). If you do not own glasses, ask your doctor
to furnish you with a prescription so that you can buy temporary glasses. Refrain from any eye makeup for
7 days following surgery. Avoid strenuous activity. You may read and watch TV as much as you would like.

CALL IMMEDIATELY if you experience severe pain or sudden loss of vision

Visual Recovery: You should not expect to see well immediately. There is normally much variability in the
recovery rate between different patients. Your eyelids may be mildly “droopy” or swollen. This is usually a
temporary condition. You may notice that your vision is blurry. If you are not comfortable driving, or
operating hazardous equipment, please avoid doing so until your vision is satisfactory. It usually takes
several months before visual rehabilitation is started. You may notice increased sensitivity to sunlight.
Wear sunglasses as needed.
