At the end of your procedure you will be given a hand out with detailed after care instructions such as what drops to instill and how often, as well as do’s and don’ts during recovery. It is normal to have the following symptoms: Watering eyes & nose, light sensitivity, redness and swelling of eye, or the feeling that something is in your eye. Vision may be foggy, like seeing under water. We recommend going home and relaxing for the duration of the day. Try to rest and sleep immediately following your procedure. Your eyes will feel most comfortable when closed.
