It appears that you have a good result. Sometimes it just takes longer than other times for the swelling to go down. factors such as bleeding, medications, etc. may cause the swelling to last longer. Ocu Mend patches and pineapple and Arnica immediately after the injection seems to help decrease swelling.

It can take a few weeks for all the swelling to subside.  Allow time to heal.  Follow up with your surgeon so that he can monitor your healing.

The swelling can take several weeks to subside. Be patient and allow things to heal for you. Good luck.
