The Do’s And Don’ts Post EVO ICL Surgery
If you’re thinking about getting EVO ICL surgery, or you already have your appointment, you’re probably wondering what to expect during the recovery period. You’ll be glad to know that for most patients, the recovery period after EVO ICL is generally short.
Your vision will likely be blurry immediately after your surgery, and this may last for one to two days. Once this passes, most patients are back to work or their usual activities. While complete healing is achieved one to two months after the procedure, this is not significant and will not affect your day-to-day life and activities. Each individual is different and has differing recovery experiences, but for most patients, the recovery process generally includes some mild soreness or irritation for a few days. From there, you can expect your eyes to be “back to normal,”–except normal now means you can see clearly!
We’ve put together some do’s and don’ts to think about that will help ensure your recovery period is smooth, and you heal well.
