You may have some pain for a few days after the surgery. Your eye may be swollen, red or tender for several weeks. Your eye doctor may put drops in your eye that prevent infection and keep the pupil from opening wide (dilating) or closing (constricting). You may have to wear a patch over the eye for a day or more.
Contact your doctor right away if you notice any signs of complications after surgery, such as:
- Decreasing vision
- Increasing pain
- Increasing redness
- Swelling around the eye
- Any discharge from the eye
- Any new floaters, flashes of light, or changes in your field of vision
