Discharge advice following glaucoma surgery (Mr Galloway patients)

The morning after surgery: wash your hands, remove shield, bathe eyelids with boiled, cooled water and cotton pads. Use new piece with each wipe. Wear eye shield for 7 nights. No heavy lifting for 2 weeks. A gritty or somewhat sharp feeling may be present in the days following surgery. This is normal, and can reflect a surface dryness or be due to some sutures. Sutures are often "dissolving", but can work their way loose. If, however, any significant eye ache develops, seek advice immediately.

DO NOT RUB YOUR EYE AT ANY STAGE FOLLOWING SURGERY

You may wear dark glasses if bright lights are uncomfortable.
