Wearing Make-up After Cataract Surgery
Wearing make-up too soon after surgery will increase your risk of make-up particles and/or applicators interfering with proper healing. You also run the risk of infection.
Don’t just assume your eyes are healed; always ask your doctor when you can start applying minimal eye make-up (eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara). You may also want to consider purchasing new eye make-up after cataract surgery to further reduce the possibility of infection.
So if you are planning to have a cataract surgery procedure, keep in mind that you’ll need to go for the “natural” look for a while after your procedure. If you are having surgery for a special event, be sure to plan enough healing time so you can look your very best for the event.
