CLs and Caesarean: So long as the anesthesiologist is aware of your cls on, i see no reason why not. Especially under epidural or other form of spinal anesthesia. Under general, anesthesiologists usually apply some eye ointment to prevent eye dryness and corneal injury while asleep. Discuss it with you anesthesiologist.
