4 days after surgery it’s too early to see final results. It takes months for everything to fall into place. You have to wait at least 2 weeks before you are able to start doing exercise to help your eyes muscle and nerves get back to normal. In our practice we do blinking and squinting exercise after 2 weeks of surgery. Make sure you ask your surgeon what is the next step for them.
