• Is it safe to wear mascara after a trabeculectomy?


    Question:

    Is it safe to wear mascara after a trabeculectomy two months ago? If so, what is a safe way to remove makeup/mascara around the eye?


    Answer:

    It is generally safe to wear eye makeup two months after surgery, but to decrease risk of contamination please purchase new makeup. Avoid getting makeup or makeup remover in your eyes. Your surgeon may want you to be even more cautious, so please discuss this question with your surgeon.
