Surgery of any kind isn’t something to be taken lightly. When it’s eye surgery in question, this becomes even more serious. After all, we’re talking about one of the most delicate organs in the human body, that’s responsible for one of our most valued senses: sight. As you can imagine, it isn’t something to be played around with. Continuous eye care and proper eye health is essential to ensuring you can make the most of your eyes even well into old age.
Today, there are different types of eye surgeries catered for different types of problems.
Refractive errors for instance are treated for permanent results via LASIK, and LASIK in dubai has in the recent past been highly sought after for the same. Phacoemulsification is one of the best surgical options out there in the treatment of cataract, for which we have both the expertise and facilities. We also have surgeries aimed at correcting retinal errors.
What’s particularly important when opting for any kind of eye surgery, is that you learn how to live life after, minus any complications and with enhanced vision. Here are a few tips to help you get along:
EYE-SHIELDS FOR THE FIRST WEEK: No matter what the type of surgery is, it’s essential that you keep your eyes well protected at all times, especially during the first week. We provide you with eye shields or goggles, whatever you want to call them, that’ll certainly make you feel odd at first, but are invaluable in keeping your eyes safe. Be it LASIK eye surgery in dubai or a cataract surgery on both eyes, we strictly advise all our patients to use them, particularly when sleeping. In that state of unconsciousness, you could very easily rub or scratch your eye which’ll be an absolute disaster.
AVOID STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES: Strenuous activities build up pressure, and pressure affects the eye. Whether you’re lifting something heavy, are doing some exercises or anything else similar, your pressure definitely increases and this can adversely affect your eye. It can even open up the incision if you’re not careful, which again, is inviting disaster. You’d not only be prone to all sorts of infections, it’ll be quite complicated to tend to it and fix it up again. Do take it easy for some time, and whilst you can go about normal activities, don’t push your luck until it’s safe.
BATHE DON’T SHOWER: Since we tend to use these words interchangeably without much though, you’d be forgiven for wondering what on earth the difference is. Well, baths allow more control than showers do. The latter spouts water directly onto your face, which is exactly what you want to avoid. Baths allow you to protect your eye much better. Also make sure that you keep soap or any other cleansers far away from your eyes. Dry your face carefully, and don’t rub. Again, this applies for all sorts of eye surgeries including LASIK treatment in dubai, retinal surgeries and more. At the end of the day, if your eye has been operated on, regardless of what it was for, you need to exercise utmost caution.
If any complications arise at any point post-surgery, please don’t hesitate to contact us immediately.
