Q What happens if we accidentally touch and/or rub the eye(s)?

Ans.  If you just touch and it does not scratch the cornea, its fine, but if your eyes are open and it scratches the  cornea, it can disturb the healing process. We advise you to wear the protective wear in the first 6 hours  during which time the flap heals. After that it takes a vigorous amount of rubbing to displace what we have  done.
