How Long for Conjunctivitis to Clear Up After Surgery?

Conjunctivitis Recovery

Tomorrow I have surgery for an inflamed conjunctiva in my left eye. I was told it would drain in May but I am one of the rare 10% where it has not. I have dry eyes in 50's do to LASIK in 30's. Used your products. I'm a little scared tomorrow but I am told I would be fine. You guys know what I may expect for healing time?

It sounds like you just have a Conjunctiva cyst and that is nothing. Your conjunctiva and your cornea heal very very quickly. That is a really great thing about having a surgery, even cataract surgery, sometimes they don't even stitch up the holes that they put in your eyes anymore because they can self seal so quickly . It is really just a matter of probably no more than a week or so, I would say. I don't know exactly what type of surgery you're having but it heals up pretty quickly.

I am guessing you just have a conjunctiva cyst which isn't really inflammation and you talked about how it should drain, but it didn't. Conjunctiva cyst are just like blisters like when you get a blister on your skin, you can get a blister on your eye with too much inflammation, that is a conjunctiva cyst. I always recommend whenever somebody goes into surgery I put them on a full swing with our products because the better cleanliness you have before the surgery, the better outcome you are going to have after the surgery.

Whenever I send somebody out for cataract surgery, I always put them on our spray because it gets their eye surface clean. Really any surgery you have, even getting surgery on my arm, I would just keep washing my arm for like a week with our spray! I mean why not? They are actually doing a study with this, not specifically our spray, but this kind of Hypochlorous Acid formulation to replace betadine in surgery. That would be kind of cool.

One Love,
