Taylor Swift underwent laser eye surgery.

After undergoing an eye laser surgery, Taylor Swift says you are only “Shake It Off”. From a video shows that the singer-songwriter Swift has appeared in the last episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. As you can see in the following section, it is almost a music video and there was neither singing nor dancing:

No, this was a video from her mother after Swift got LASIK, which is laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). LASIK rhymes with fish fingers but has nothing to do with food. Instead, an ophthalmologist uses a laser to cut a rag and reshape the cornea of ​​your eye. You may want to try LASIK to correct your vision if you need to wear glasses or contact lenses now.

If you want to try LASIK, it’s important to be operated on another song from the Swift song, Eyes Open. Not only in the truest sense of the word, so that the ophthalmologist can reach your corneas, but also in the figurative sense. Make sure you know the risks involved. Note that according to the Mayo Clinic, more than 80% of those who have undergone LASIK no longer need corrective lenses. Note that some patients experience symptoms such as dry eyes, double vision, or atria long after the operation. There is also the possibility that your eyesight will deteriorate. The success rate may depend greatly on the ophthalmologist’s skills and experience.

Also note the associated recovery. As the saying goes, surgery is minor if done to someone else. Although the procedure is fairly quick and can be done fairly quickly within 30 minutes, recovery takes some time. Swift mentioned that she had taken some painkillers as it often causes pain, discomfort, photosensitivity, burning, itching, dryness, or the feeling that something is in your eyes after the procedure, except, of course, your eyeball. You may also be ripping, not because you hear Taylor Swift songs. Your doctor may prescribe eye drops to help prevent infection and keep your eyes moist.

Other common symptoms include blurred or blurred vision and seeing glare, starbursts or halos near lights. These symptoms should improve significantly in the next few days. It is best to take a break from work until these symptoms have resolved, for seeing stars that are not on the red carpet or in the sky is not suitable for work.

Then there are those glasses that Swift wore in the video. No, she did not want to be Falcon, the Marvel superheroine who’s a member of the Avengers. Rather, they were eyeshades that kept them from accidentally rubbing their eyes or putting pressure on them until the corneal lobes had a chance to heal. A timeline from the FDA suggests wearing such eye protection at night until about four weeks after surgery.

The FDA timeline also recommends waiting for:

At least one to three days before non-contact sports are exercised.
Up to two weeks before the use of lotions, creams or make-up around the eyes.
At least four weeks before participating in contact sports. i.e. anything that can cause you to be stung in the eye.
One to two months before you swim or go to a hot tub.
So, if your main hobby is boxing outdoors in a hot tub while wearing sunscreen all over your face, you may need to find other ways to pass the time for a while.

Do not go into the procedure and do not think that your vision will be 20/20 immediately. Instead, there may be fluctuations in the following months. The stabilization can take up to six months. Visual symptoms such as glare, halos and nocturnal problems can occur during and after this period. In some cases additional procedures may be required. Such procedures as reoperation may not solve all the problems and symptoms.

All in all, recovery is not necessarily so fast, so to speak. Again, the LASIK is not for everyone and possibly not for you, even if you can not wear glasses or contacts. Beware of anyone trying to transfer the process to everyone. Instead, only look for doctors who recognize that eye care, like any health care, should be tailored to your situation and needs.
