Q How many days should i take out from my schedule for the treatment to be done and for the later checkups in all?

Ans. We need to do one eye at a time. As some are symptomatic for about a week, we prefer to do the second eye when one is comfortable with the first treatment. This can be spaced between 5-6 days apart. If they are from out of Mumbai, then one plans accordingly.

The days to stay away from work are the first 5-7 days post procedure as the bandage lens is removed on Day 4 and it may take upto another 2 days to be symptom free.

You basically start using your old glasses. Contact lenses can be worn after about 10-15 days.
