For a typical cosmetic eyelid surgery, the eyes do not need to be kept closed after surgery and they can be opened immediately. I would recommend checking with your particular surgeon to see if there is some reason that your eyes need to remain closed.
After eyelid surgery, 10 am today, how long do I keep my eyes closed?
