Fall and winter are the best times of the year to have necessary and elective eye surgery.
Why? There are a few reasons:
Wearing a bulky bandage that covers part of your face when it’s extremely hot outside can be miserable. However, during the fall and winter, temperatures aren’t too high, so you won’t have to deal with sweating around your bandage as much. Not only is that more comfortable, it’s cleaner too.
Just like any eye procedure, you’ll want to avoid UV exposure as much as possible after surgery. The sunlight is not as harsh during the fall and winter, so if you do have to be outside, you won’t be at as much risk. Trust us… letting the summer sun hit an eye that’s recently undergone surgery is a mistake you won’t let happen twice!
Beach volleyball with an eye bandage isn’t really our idea of fun, and it’s probably not yours either. Sand in your eye incision? No thanks! Spend the winter recovering instead so you can get back out there as soon as the temperatures start to rise in the spring.
