Care after Eyelid Surgery
The incisions should be treated with ointment to keep them lubricated. For the first couple of days after the surgery, the eyelids typically feel tight; discomfort may be treated with analgesics. In the first week after the procedure, patients should avoid any activities that may dry up the eyes, including reading, watching television, wearing contacts, and using a computer.
After Eyelid Surgery
The doctor will remove the stitches within two days to a week after the eyelid surgery procedure. For the first couple of weeks following the surgery, dark sunglasses are recommended to the patient to protect the eyes from irritation caused by the sun and wind.
