You must wear your protective eye shield while sleeping or napping for about a week after surgery.
While your eye heals you might experience some eye redness and blurred vision during the first few days or even weeks following the procedure.
During at least the first week of your recovery it is essential that you avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting, bending, exercising and similar activities that might stress your eye while it is healing, and water that might splash into your eye and cause infection.
Keep your eye closed while showering or bathing. Also, avoid swimming or hot tubs for at least four weeks and any activity that would expose your healing eye to dust, grime or other infection-causing contaminants.
