While we recommend taking light daily walks during your recovery to help speed the healing process, you’ll need to avoid doing things that elevate your blood pressure until Dr. Teotia clears you to do so. These activities include bending, lifting, and strenuous exercise. You will also be more susceptible to eye strain and fatigue, so please refrain from excessive reading and screen time in favor of activities that allow you to rest your eyes, like listening to music or audiobooks.
If you wear contacts, we ask you not to put them in for at least 10 days. Also, do not apply moisturizer or makeup products like eyeshadow, eyeliner, or mascara to your surgical sites for at least two weeks after your surgery. You can continue using cosmetics on the rest of your face if you wish.
