Top Products To Invest In After Laser Eye Surgery

Laser Eye Surgery After Care

There is a famous (and hilarious) scene in the Simpsons where Homer has eye surgery performed. Afterward, he leaves the clinic when the eye surgeon tells him that he needs to apply eye drops to prevent his eyes from crusting over.

He refuses, stating that the eyedrops are an unnecessary add-on, and as he walks away, his eyes crust over instantly.

This kind of incident after eye surgery, luckily, has never been reported, but when you have just undertaken laser eye surgery, there are some bits that you can invest in to ensure that the healing process is fast, effective and that the surgery was money well-spent.

So, what are these products that can help your eyes to heal quickly?


In most cases, after eye surgery, your optician or your doctor may recommend a specific type of sunglasses or even prescription glasses, which will help to protect your eyes against bright lights.

As well as this, you will need to ensure that any glasses that you wear following the laser surgery will also be able to protect your eyesight against UV rays and other potential irritants. This will make sure that your eyes heal quickly, especially if you have had a procedure such as Trans PRK Brisbane.

Eye Drops

After you have had your surgery, your eyes are more likely to experience dryness or irritation. Therefore, it is worth investing in a high-quality, preservative-free, lubricating eye drop alongside any eye drops that have been prescribed to you.

This will help to ensure that your eyes are kept moist and will alleviate any itchiness or discomfort, as well as speed up the healing process. If you aren’t sure which type is the best for you, be sure to consult with your ophthalmologist about the most suitable options to help your eyes to heal.

Eye Mask

Most people who live in countries where the sun comes up at 5 am every day will have an eye mask. However, when it comes to recovering from eye surgery, you may need to invest in a different type of eye mask or protective goggles.

These will be helpful, especially when you are sleeping, as this will prevent any accidental rubbing or scratching of your eyes. In turn, this will reduce the risk of an eye infection developing and will help with quicker healing.

Blue Light Filter For Computer

If you have a job that requires you to spend extended periods of time on electronic devices, like tablets, smartphones, or computers, it is well worth investing in a blue light filter for the screens.

You may have heard of these before, but blue light filters can help to reduce eye strain and potential discomfort, which your eyes are more likely to be experiencing post-surgery, allowing them to relax and heal faster.

Black Out Blinds

As well as investing in an eye mask, it can also be worth looking into blackout blinds in your bedroom or around your workspace. As before, this is to prevent your eyes from coming into contact with harmful UV rays and will also prevent squinting on bright days.
