Patient Care


  1. Rubbing your eye with your hands to prevent dislodging stitches or hindering healing. Use a clean tissue or sterile cotton swab if your eye waters or itches.

  3. Avoid eye washing with normal water for 10 days.
  4. Steer clear of activities that may harm your eyes, such as playing with children, contact sports, or swimming for a month to minimize infection or injury risks.
  5. Don’t lift heavy weights or strain through activities like coughing, sneezing, or bowel movements for a month to prevent increased eye pressure.
