Is it normal to have blurry vision 9 days after brow/cheek lift?
Forehead Lift, Brow LiftFacelift

Can't see well (close or midrange) with my glasses or contacts. It's been 9 days since my endoscopic brow & midface lift. Oddly, my eyes remained open during the surgery (I had general anesthesia), but doc said my eyes were kept lubricated throughout. Hoped to be back at work soon, but can't see computer or papers on my desk. Outer corner of each eye is turned up slightly -- perhaps that contributed to the altered vision? Had I known my vision was at stake, I'd never have done this! Years ago I had an upper bleph, and had no problems with vision. Thank you for any advice or suggestions.

Vision can be blurry from swelling, dry eyes, and/or ointment on eyes. However, this is usually for first few days. You should see your surgeon and perhaps an ophthalmologist. (more)
