Frequently Asked Questions

Can I keep my hearing aid in during surgery?2021-07-01T03:57:02+00:00

It will be necessary to remove a hearing aid worn on the same side as the eye having surgery. This is to ensure no water gets into the hearing aid causing permanent damage.

When can I wash my hair after surgery?2021-03-22T02:09:47+00:00

It is fine to shower and wash hair the following day after surgery. Keep your eyes closed to ensure no water enters the eye.
