There is no doubt in the fact that when you get a successful squint surgery done by the best squint specialist in Mumbai, the results that you get are awesome, and you will then be able to see the world in a whole new way with a normal collaborated vision from both eyes, one that you had been wishing for ever since you got your squint. But, do you want to know what exactly it is like after getting a squint surgery done? So, here is a detailed view of what you will generally experience after the surgery, on a daily basis, for the next seven days, and how long it will take you to recover completely.

Day 1

The first day after the surgery it is very normal to have a feeling of anxiety because there are so many emotions and so many feelings running up and down your head and mind. Firstly, when you open your eyes for the first time after the surgery, it’s obvious that everything will be a blur, but your eyes will also hurt when you try to open them. Thus, it is only wise that you keep your eyes closed as much as possible. You needn’t open them for the entire day, until very necessary. We know it is going to be really difficult for you to stay without your vision for the entire day, but you could just imagine the immense amount of pleasure and happiness you are going to feel for the rest of your life after this one day of difficulty! So, while you are not going to use your eyes for the whole day, you can always arrange for someone to be beside you and hold your hand to help you with all your daily chores for the day, or even better, the next few days. Until you feel better. However, if you still have to open your eyes at some time, we make you aware of the fact that you will be experiencing red tears coming out of your eyes. So, worry not if you experience something like that because it’s very normal after a squint surgery. Another advice here is that you must quit watching television and using your phone completely for at least the first day after surgery. Yes, you could always use voice messages and calls, or you could take help from Alexa or Siri to keep you entertained. Some people also experience a headache and itchy eyes, but again, this is normal too. All of these things are going to happen for the first day, so just keep your cool, and get to sleep as soon as you can, thinking about the pleasure you will have once you start using your eyes again.

Day 2

If you have a good night’s sleep, your eyes should be feeling a lot better now. However, that pain, watering, redness, and blurriness is not going to go anywhere so soon. So, while you can open your eyes much more than what you could the previous day, you will be seeing red eyes that you will have to keep wiping off every now and then. Also, your eyes are going to be light sensitive; so you could use sunglasses whenever you go out in the sun, or even when you are watching TV or using your cellphone. Be ready to experience some pain when you move your eyes, along with itching, watering, and blurriness, but it’s going to get better with time.

Day 3

This is a better day-to-be. You will be opening your eyes enough to be able to walk around in your street and also drive a short distance. Definitely, you will be experiencing light sensitivity, a little pain, and watery eyes on the third day too, but it will certainly feel much better. But, you must have your sunglasses on whenever you move out of your house, even if it is a five minute walk. However, just because you can move around better now doesn’t mean you should exert your eyes. Do only the necessary, and keep your eyes rested otherwise. Have a friend or two over who can keep you entertained and free from boredom and loneliness.

Day 4, 5, and 6

These are going to be the best days you have had ever since your surgery. Your eyes will be less itchy and painful these days, but yet very watery. You can move out of home more, but only with your sunglasses on to keep the light and dust away. You will also be able to sleep much better now, which will make you feel more energetic than the past three days.

Day 7

You will probably be called in for a checkup today. If everything seems good, the doctor will probably let you off your medications or eye drops, or he may suggest them for a few days more. But, otherwise, you will generally be called for a rest only for another day or two; and then, you could get on with your normal routines and chores; and that even includes driving, cooking, and makeup!

So, it’s going to be a difficult one week after your surgery, but the results that you are going to have after that are going to be amazing for a lifetime! So, if you have squint, fret not, and get in for an appointment with Arohi Eye Hospital, where you can have only the best squint specialist in Mumbai diagnosing and treating your eyes for the most successful outcomes.
