If there are no obvious injuries that are causing discomfort after surgery, it appears safe to wear contacts after rhinoplasty. However, some surgeons suggest leaving them out for a few days, just as a precaution. The main concern would be corneal irritation when the contacts are fitted. Always get the advice of your surgeon before proceeding.
The healing process will begin straight after rhinoplasty. You may not feel like wearing contacts immediately after rhinoplasty surgery. It will be up to you when you return to wearing contact lenses.
Can I wear contacts after rhinoplasty?
If you have the option of wearing either glasses or contact lenses whenever it suits you, you are lucky. You can put your glasses to one side and forget about them until you’re ready to wear them after rhinoplasty.
But not everyone can wear contact lenses. Some of us can only wear glasses and we rely on them completely. This leaves a problem after rhinoplasty surgery. In most cases a splint is applied to the nose which needs to stay in place for a while after rhinoplasty surgery has taken place.
This will offer some protection as the weight of the glasses can be supported without touching the nose. It’s when the splint has to be removed that the problems begin. If you’re unable to wear contacts after rhinoplasty surgery then you need a way to wear glasses but keep them off your nose.
There are a number of ways to do this. The first, emergency, way is what most surgeons appear to suggest, which is to use sticky-tape to stick your glasses in an elevated position, supported from the skin on your forehead.
There is a head-band that has a hook that’s designed to hold up your glasses. Both the sticky-tape and head-band methods will protect your nose from the weight of glasses after rhinoplasty.
