Are My Contacts Uncomfortable Because Conjunctiva Are Too Tight After Surgery?
I'm a 54 year old female, 6 weeks post-op bilateral upper and lower blepharoplasty. I wear extremely thin daily wear contacts that were absolutely perfect before the surgery. I stayed out of them the recommended two weeks & have been wearing them now for four weeks. The left contact feels awful, like it's constantly trying to roll up. I saw my eye care doc and he said my eyes weren't dry but the conjunctiva is extremely tight in the left eye. Will this eventually get better?
Blepharoplasty can tip a borderline dry eye patient over the edge..
Uncomfortable lenses are dry till proven otherwise
Intolerance of contact lenses may last for several months after eyelid surgery.
