Pain and Discomfort: You may experience pain, burning, pulling, a
“gritty” feeling, tightness, etc. in and around the eyes. Keeping the eyes lubricated will help reduce these symptoms. You may also experience light sensitivity temporarily. Sunglasses are recommended.

Activity/Diet: Normal Activity can be resumed tomorrow. DO NOT strain, perform vigorous activities or swim for the next 2 weeks. You may shower and wash you hair tomorrow. DO NOT sign any legal documents for the next 24 hours. If you had anesthesia, you may feel tired for several days. Get plenty of rest and resume your normal diet, starting with light, non-greasy foods.

DO NOT use Aspirin, Ibuprofen (Motrin, Nuprin, Advil etc.), Naproxen (Aleve), or any related drugs for 2 weeks before surgery. These drugs can lead to bleeding problems. If you are on a blood thinning agent, resume your medication per the instructions of your primary care physician. Read a complete list of vitamins and medications you cannot take 2 weeks before surgery.

DO NOT use tobacco in any form for 2 weeks after surgery as this leads to poor healing. Tobacco can also lead to failure of a skin graft.

PAIN: On a pain scale of 1-10, with 10 being the worst, try to keep your pain below a 4. You may use Tylenol for pain relief. DO NOT exceed 4000mg of Tylenol in 24 hours. If you were prescribed pain medication, please take as directed and note that each tablet contains Tylenol. (Per Tablet: Darvocet N-100 contains 650mg of Tylenol; Vicodin contains 500mg of Tylenol; Percocet contains 325mg of Tylenol)
