As your eye is healing, your vision should be improving and any discomfort, such as grittiness or ache, reducing. It is ok to perform all your usual activities.
Use common sense and avoid anything that may put you at risk of infection or an eye injury. It is perfectly fine for you to use your eyes to read, watch TV, cook or sew.
You can bend over to put on your shoes or pick up light objects.
You can shower and wash your hair – but don’t get water in your eyes!
You can sleep on either side.
