It’s not just vanity. There are important precautions you should take with regards face and eyelid products for both women and men before and after laser eye surgery.
Try to keep mascara and eye liner to a minimum. Make-up often spills over inside the eyelids and washes over the surface of your eyes. This can interfere with your scans.
No eyelid or face make-up, skin lotions or perfumes. This is because vapour from skin products can interfere with the laser energy delivered to the eye and adversely affect the accuracy of your treatment. This applies similarly to aftershave.
