Will my eyes be bothered by contacts after I have eyelid surgery?

Question:

Will my eyes be bothered by contacts after I have eyelid surgery?

Answer:

I ask my patients who wear contacts to avoid wearing them for 2-3 weeks after upper and/or lower blepharoplasty. I do not want any pulling or stretching of the upper or lower eyelids after surgery. Also, the temporary swelling of the conjunctiva of the eye interferes with proper fitting of the contact.
