Lake Oswego, Oregon, June 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Tersigni Vision, a premier provider of LASIK eye surgery, is proud to announce the release of a comprehensive guide addressing a common concern among patients: wearing eye makeup after LASIK surgery. This essential resource, an article titled “Eye Makeup After LASIK”, provides patients with clear, evidence-based recommendations to ensure a smooth and safe recovery while resuming their normal cosmetic routines.

Undergoing LASIK surgery at Tersigni Vision is a life-changing experience that offers patients the gift of clear vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. However, understanding the importance of post-operative care is crucial for optimal healing and maintaining the benefits of the procedure. One of the most frequently asked questions by patients is when and how they can safely reintroduce eye makeup into their daily routines. The new guide from Tersigni Vision offers detailed answers, helping to alleviate concerns and provide a clear path to recovery.

According to the guide, patients should wait at least one week after their LASIK surgery before applying any eye makeup, such as mascara, eyeliner, or eyeshadow. This precaution is essential to allow the eyes to heal properly and to prevent potential complications that could arise from early makeup application. The delicate nature of the eyes post-surgery means that any foreign particles or pressure can interfere with the healing process. Tersigni Vision emphasizes that patients should avoid makeup for at least 24 hours before the surgery as well, ensuring a clean and safe procedure.

The guide further explains that during the first week post-LASIK, it is important to monitor any crusting around the eye area and to apply makeup gently to avoid exerting pressure on the eyes. Even after this initial period, patients are advised to use hypoallergenic and non-irritating products to minimize the risk of irritation. Tersigni Vision recommends avoiding makeup on the waterline, as this sensitive area is particularly prone to irritation and infection.

To ensure a successful recovery, Tersigni Vision advises patients to be vigilant for any signs of discomfort or changes in vision after resuming makeup use. If any issues arise, it is crucial to consult with a doctor immediately. The guide highlights that while general guidelines suggest a week-long waiting period, the exact timing can vary depending on individual healing progress and the specific advice of Dr. Tersigni, the LASIK surgeon.

In addition to eye makeup, the guide also provides valuable information on other cosmetic products. Patients can safely use makeup that is not applied near the eyes, such as foundation, concealer, blush, and contour, as early as the day following the procedure. However, it is important to apply these products carefully and to keep them away from the eye area to prevent any interference with the healing process. The use of lotions and other facial products should also be approached with caution to ensure they do not come into contact with the eyes.

The importance of gentle makeup removal is another key point covered in the guide. Patients are advised to use a soft, downward motion rather than rubbing side to side to minimize pressure on the eyes. Choosing eye makeup products that are easy to remove can help prevent the need for excessive rubbing or the use of harsh cleaners. This careful approach to makeup removal is a small but significant step in ensuring a smooth recovery after LASIK surgery at Tersigni Vision.

Surgeons at Tersigni Vision strongly advise against wearing makeup immediately after LASIK to prevent infection and ensure proper healing. The LASIK procedure uses a precise laser to correct vision, making post-operative care, including makeup application, a critical aspect of recovery. During the first week post-surgery, the risk of introducing bacteria to the eyes is particularly high, as makeup and its applicators can harbor harmful microorganisms. Even meticulous application can result in accidental contamination, posing a significant risk to the healing process.

Tersigni Vision underscores that post-operative care primarily involves using prescribed anti-bacterial drops, and introducing makeup too soon can compromise the sterile conditions necessary for recovery. Research indicates that opened makeup products often harbor bacteria, further highlighting the importance of avoiding eye makeup immediately after surgery. By abstaining from makeup, patients can ensure a successful healing process and avoid setbacks in their recovery journey.

Maintaining cleanliness of makeup tools is another critical aspect of post-LASIK care. Tersigni Vision emphasizes the importance of thoroughly cleaning makeup brushes and sponges before use. These tools should be washed with gentle soap and water and dried completely to remove bacteria and prevent infection.

Dr. Tersigni and his team are dedicated to providing patients with the highest standard of care, ensuring that each individual receives personalized advice based on their unique healing progress. By following the guidelines outlined in this comprehensive guide, patients can enjoy their newly improved vision while minimizing the risk of complications associated with eye makeup.
