My sister in law had a cornea eye surgery it's been a week and the doctor told her not to sleep on the side of the eye that got the surgery?

My sister in law had a cornea eye surgery it's been a week and the doctor told her not to sleep on the side of the eye that got the surgery?

Common protocol : By not resting the head on the side of eye surgery, you are protecting it against the undesirable pressure effect from the pillow against the closed eyelids. Usually, however, a plastic shield is affixed with tape over the eye prior to going to bed to protect it during sleep. This latter eye shield is usually all that is needed for protection and therefore, tends not to matter what side you sleep. ...Read more

Cornea surgery (Tip)

Be aware that there are specialists in all areas these days. This applies to rehabilitation from surgery or injuries as well. I would advise you to seek out the experts and then let their advice become your routine. Time and space separate you from whatever initiated the damage. Focus on what you have and then go from there. Some of us will pass through life without splitting a toenail. Most of the rest of us are not so lucky. ...See more

Ulcerated cornea. Do i need surgery?

If it is not controlled with anti-microbials and/or there is too much inflammation, then the cornea will thin out & eventually perforate. That will require immediate treatment and likely surgery. Even if the infection is cured patients may still require surgery for scarring. ...Read more
