Loosening and loss of consistency of skin and eyelid retention tissues cause puffiness of the eyelids and hanging skin in this area. To kill the skin of their eyelids. In this post we will review the important points after the eyelid drop surgery.
۱. Ptosis correction surgery is performed on the muscle and sometimes using a thigh muscle sheath or synthetic material.
۲. Postoperative ptosis is more common in the lower eyelid than in the opposite eye, which is an inevitable complication of surgery and must be decided before surgery.
۳. Ptosis surgery sometimes requires surgery in both eyes (although you may have symptoms in one eye).
۴. Post-operative ptosis surgery often does not require hospitalization.
۵. Eye dressing is removed the day after surgery and may be dressed on the first to third day of the eye, but no shielding or plastic shielding is required after this time.
۶. Ptosis surgery often lasts for a short period of time, which prevents drying of the ointment at night.Usually after a few months the eyes are adapted to the above conditions and do not need ointment.
۷. Praying from the very first day of practicing with Timim on the stone is forbidden and prostration is not an obstacle.
۸. Ask your doctor when bathing. But you can usually bathe from day two.
9. In ptosis surgery, we usually have a suture on the eyelid that is removed within the first two weeks after surgery.
10. Note that some ptosis surgeries in children are performed temporarily with special yarns to prevent laziness from closing the eyelid. As the face grows, the effect disappears and most of the surgery is completed. It has to be repeated and the second time usually more permanent methods are used. Always remember the number of days after surgery and remember each visit.
11. Take any medications you take, especially drops, and remember their names because you may be taking medications because of the apparent similarity of some drops and the lack of visibility.
12. Be careful not to drop the label on the drops and place each drop on your cover after use.
13. Ask your doctor how to use drops (Proper and timely use of medications after surgery can greatly influence the success of the procedure).
14. Try to use the drops at the time prescribed by your doctor. You do not need to wake up at the interval of sleep (1-2 hours), but it is best to ask your doctor.
15. Try to keep the drop open at normal temperature (2-5 degrees Celsius) and use it for up to 3 weeks after opening the lid. So avoid frost or extreme heat.
16. Avoid drip tip contact with eyes or other surfaces. Close the container tightly after each use.
17. Do not use in the event of a drop or discoloration.
18. Never clean the area around the eye with rough cloth or paper towels, as this may cause the cornea to scratch.
19. Morning after waking up, there may be a lot of discharge around the eyelashes and corners of the eye that can be used to cleanse the eye with antibiotic eye drops (Chloramphenicol, Gentamicin, Sulfacetam, etc.) in the eye and on the eyelid. Wash and then gently clean with cotton or sterile cleaning. Be careful not to apply finger pressure directly to the eyeball as this can open the sutures or scarring the site.
20. It is unacceptable to study, watch television, and live life activities that are not accompanied by intense physical activity and proper head positioning.
21. This disease and its nutritional surgery do not have a specific diet, and if you have a pre-operative diet (diabetes – hypertension – gastric ulcer …) continue the same diet after surgery.
22. Avoid using cosmetics (creams, masks, eyelashes, colored lenses, oils around the eyes, etc.) and ask your doctor when starting them.
23. Lightweight, non-eye-catching sports, but avoid swimming, boxing and other eye-catching things.
Correct method of drip in the eye
It is very important that the drops are properly poured into the jejunum and that it may be too much or too little. Dropping too much may increase the risk of side effects and your disease may not be effectively controlled.
Most patients make their own drops, although some prefer to do so with the help of others. If you would like to drop the drops yourself, follow the steps listed below. You can drop the drops in any situation you feel comfortable with:
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap.
Standing – sitting – lying down.
Hold the container in your hand above your eyes. Slowly lower your lower eyelid with your index finger to create a small cavity under the eye. Press the dropper to drop into the eye.
Gently close your eyes. Do not open and close the eyelids quickly so that the drop does not get out of sight before it is absorbed.
To reduce the amount of droplets that enter the lacrimal ducts (and bloodstream), it is best to keep your eyes closed for 1 to 2 minutes. This will help keep the lacrimal ducts closed. Pressing on the inner corner of the eye for about 5 minutes has a similar effect.
One important point: just drop one drop in each eye. If you need to use two different drops in one hour, wait a minute after the first injection to make sure the previous drug is absorbed into the eye then apply the next drop.
