Your surgeon will advise you of the best methods of aftercare but remember that recovery from any operation involving the delicate eye area takes time and during this period you will be out of action for at least a few days.
Recovery rates depend on the individual but there is no doubt that you will be able to speed things up with a little extra help.
A convenient alternative to using leaky ice packs, messy frozen peas, or dripping hot gauze pads and towels, the lightweight, reusable Swiss Therapy Eye Mask Compress, pictured above, (3 per box) is unlike any other cold compress on the market with its ultra flexible design that enables the compress to conform to the shape of your zone.
Being that the compress is incredibly light and thin, it feels like a second skin and puts minimal pressure. Unlike other compresses that can leak, it is non-sticky and stays only moist – but not wet.
Made from hydrogel and coming in a sterile package, the Swiss Eye Mask can be used on the eye area for cold therapy to reduce post operative swelling and discomfort, decrease healing time, and enable the patient to return to his/her normal activities more quickly.
