Pre-Op Information Keeps Your Eyes Protected

By following the pre-op information our optometrist will give you, you can reduce your chances of infection and related problems. You don't have to worry as much about your procedure, either, if you know you've done everything right. Often, the kinds of things you'll need to do involve making sure the area around your eyes is very clean, and not using any kind of makeup or lotion on your face on the day of the treatment. Depending on your specific procedure there may be other things you'll have to do to get ready, too, such as taking medications or using eye drops.

With Proper Post-Op Care, Your Eyes Will Heal Faster

Not only is it very important to care for your eyes before a procedure, but the aftercare is also vital. If you've had any kind of invasive procedure there may be a risk of infection. You can reduce that when you follow proper guidelines from your optometrist. That way you'll have the best chance of your eyes healing properly, without complications. Often, you'll have eye drops or other medications you'll need to take. You may also be told not to touch or rub your eyes, and given other instructions about how to care for them until they're fully healed.
