How long does it take for eyes to heal after strabismus surgery?

In the days after surgery, it is usual to experience some scratchy and painful sensations. It is also advised to avoid bright sunlight and excessive eye strain, such as with a lot of reading or computer work. Rest your eyes and resist the urge to rub or touch the areas. After 10 to 14 days, you will see your surgeon again, and should be feeling much better as healing progresses. Redness and swelling should be at a minimum by this time, and your doctor may release you to resume normal activities.
