How long can myopic operation restore eyesight? Will normal life be affected during recovery?

Abstract: surgery with slow vision recovery includes these: t-prk and LASEK. The recovery of vision after these operations is slow. It usually takes about 7 days to recover normal vision. During this period, vision gradually recovers. The visual acuity will fluctuate within one month after operation. It is usually necessary to use hormone eye drops for 4-6 months.

after myopia laser surgery (all femtosecond laser, femtosecond laser, t-prk, LASEK, LASIK, etc.), vision will not rise to the normal level immediately, but need a certain period of recovery and adaptation, usually several days to months. The speed of vision recovery is different.

01. The operations for rapid vision recovery include all femtosecond laser, femtosecond laser and ordinary LASIK. Visual acuity recovered rapidly. The vast majority of patients can recover normal visual acuity 24 hours after operation and reach stable visual acuity one month after operation.

02. Surgery with slow vision recovery includes these: t-prk and LASEK. The recovery of vision after these operations is slow. It usually takes about 7 days to recover normal vision. During this period, vision gradually recovers. The visual acuity will fluctuate within one month after operation. It is usually necessary to use hormone eye drops for 4-6 months.

in addition, the speed of vision recovery also depends on age, eye refractive adjustment ability and the degree of myopia before operation. Generally speaking, young people and those with low myopia before operation recover faster;

in addition, Vision at a distance is better than near vision (such as reading, watching fine objects, etc.) recover earlier. Therefore, in the process of postoperative visual acuity recovery, pay special attention not to watch TV, computer, books and newspapers for a long time, so as not to cause eye fatigue and discomfort. When going to the hospital for regular examination after operation, the doctor will carefully check the visual acuity and eye diopter, and use some eye medicine to help the visual acuity as needed The improvement of and the stability of diopter.

after myopia surgery, you need to pay attention to the following matters to ensure faster postoperative recovery.

1. In normal life,

myopia laser surgery takes only a few minutes to more than ten minutes. The eyes can be used normally 1-2 days after operation. Eyes can be opened after operation, but some patients have slight discomfort such as tears and foreign body feeling within a few hours after operation. It does not affect normal school and work.

2. Work and entertainment

you can watch TV, read books, watch computers, mobile phones, etc. the next day, but your eyes are easy to be tired after myopia surgery. Therefore, you should not use your eyes too close for too long. If you feel eye fatigue, you’d better close your eyes and refresh yourself or look far. Within one month after operation, use the computer or mobile phone for 20 ~ 30 minutes, rest for 10 ~ 15 minutes, look at the distance 5 meters away, or close your eyes and rest, and then use the computer or mobile phone for half an hour. After a month, you can appropriately extend the time of using the computer according to your own situation. For each hour of using the computer, rest for 10 minutes to see the distance, and then use the computer for another hour and rest for 10 minutes. This cycle goes back and forth.

3. Wash your hair and face

you can wash your hair and face after rechecking the eyes on the second day after operation. But still be careful not to let dirty water or facial cleanser shampoo splash into your eyes. If you accidentally splash a small amount of sewage into your eyes, don’t worry. Just use antibiotic eye drops once.

4. Make up

for women who love beauty, they may be more concerned about when they can make up after surgery. Facial makeup can be the next day. When removing makeup, pay attention not to let dirty water and makeup remover enter their eyes. But eye makeup is best to wait three months later, because eyeliner, mascara and other easy to plug the eyelid margin of the “meibomian gland” exports, resulting in dry eye symptoms.

5. Sports fitness

walking and other light sports can be carried out the next day, but strenuous sports, such as boxing, football and basketball, should be avoided within three months. It is best not to swim within six months, because the hygienic condition of swimming pool water or seawater is easy to cause eye infection. In addition, a large number of disinfectants in the pool water are easy to cause strong irritation to the eyes.
