Hi ~ It is important to follow your surgeons recommendations during the post operative period. In general, we tell patients it is ok to watch TV, read after eyelid surgery.

You will not harm your surgery or final results by reading, watching tv, or keeping your eyes open after double eyelid surgery.  Good luck!

Will stressing the eyes following double eyelid surgery change the results

Thank you for sharing your question. If you are referring to excessive use of your eyes as "stressing", then you have nothing to worry about. I hope this helps.  Good luck,
