Care after eye surgeries

 As you know, after each surgery, following a series of instructions is essential for the person to recover completely as soon as possible. One of the most common outpatient surgeries these days is eye surgery, which includes cataract surgery, LASIK surgery, etc. In eye surgeries, because the incision site is very small and a few millimeters, and due to the high rate of cell proliferation and the humidity of the site, the speed of repair is very high and doctors believe that the role of nutrition in recovery is less than other surgeries. . And doctors usually use the same routines in all surgeries. Doctors include foods such as proteins such as eggs, low-fat dairy products, and legumes, especially darker legumes and meats that are preferably chicken breasts, as well as protein powders that can be obtained from pharmacies with water or fruit juices. Recommend. However, because a person’s activity is severely reduced during recovery and the digestive system slows down, to prevent constipation and dryness, the patient should replace most light proteins such as chicken breast with chicken liver instead of red meat, because constipation occurs during this period. It can put pressure on the eyes and tear the stitches and bleed, posing a serious risk, and to prevent this complication, fiber foods should be included with proteins. A plate full of vegetables and broccoli, especially carrots, which are rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene, which improves vision after surgery, and also completely avoid eating sweets and high-calorie snacks, which both raise blood sugar and cause constipation.

 

 

  Other doctors advise the patient to use foods and fruits rich in vitamin C such as oranges, kiwis, kale, and peppers because this vitamin accelerates the healing process of the wound, and even if you do not have access to these substances from supplements and effervescent tablets. Used. In addition to all this, vitamin D and omega 3 should not be neglected, which cures the pain a little, and also maintains eye moisture during this period by consuming garlic and onion. The patient should try to drink plenty of water throughout the day to minimize the side effects of medication. Patients should try to prepare all their meals before the day of surgery and keep them in the refrigerator so that they do not have any problems after the operation.

During recovery, the patient should refrain from smoking cigarettes, hookahs, and alcoholic beverages so as not to disrupt his recovery process and refrain from driving for a few days at the surgeon’s discretion.

And to prevent infection and the entry of environmental pollution and sunlight into the eyes, use sunglasses or special eyelids.

As we know that stress is the mother of all our diseases and physical problems, the patient should do his best to avoid as much as possible the stress and fear even with the help of a weak sedative.

One of the most important points after eye surgery is the accurate and timely use of medications prescribed by your doctor. Medications that include antibiotic drops to prevent possible infections, as well as drops to prevent inflammation and inflammation of the eye and should be taken by the patient-caregiver at the exact time and regularly two or three times a day for a month in compliance with health tips in Eyes, should be shed. During this period, you should not rub your eyes with your hands, avoid going to the pool and under the shower directly on your face, and avoid eye makeup. The patient should try to avoid lifting heavy objects as well as exercise so as not to cause any problems.

 After a few days of surgery, the patient should go to the relevant doctor for re-examination, review, change of dressing, and eye number determination to receive new instructions from the doctor and, God willing, to be able to return to normal life as soon as possible.
