I am both near sighted and far sighted and have poor vision. I am getting eyelid surgery on my top eyelids. How long after having Blepharoplasty, can I wear my contact lenses and glasses?
Glasses can be worn immediately after your surgery, but not so for contact lenses. The soft tissue swelling of the upper eyelid can impart a minor change in the shape of your cornea. This sometimes creates a suction cup effect, inhibiting removal of the contact in the eager patient! I like to wait two weeks postoperative to allow contact wear, and I have the patient put them in and take them out while in clinic to ensure safety.
