Hello there...., I can understand your concern.... It's normal to feel itching and mild discomfort for a couple of days after surgery. Avoid rubbing or pushing on your eye....atkso ask her to wear an eye patch or protective shield the day of surgery.... After a couple of days, most of the discomfort should disappear. Often, complete healing occurs within eight weeks....Follow instructions given by your Ophthalmologist....
