Hello Usually it is safe after surgery Having said that ask your surgeon if epithelium is totally healed or not. Wash only when epithelium is healed properly else chance of infection

You can definitely wash your face. Hair wash also is OK, since it is one week now. However, wash carefully, making sure that dirty water does not enter your eyes. You can also gently wash your closed eyes. Avoid rubbing the eyes during the wash.
