AFAIK, it can be done at 5. With how quickly SmartSurfACE re-epithelializes in most patients, it probably can be done at 4. I found the bandage contact lens to be incredibly comfortable with the drop regime they prescribed, so whether its 5 days, or 7 days, doesn't really matter. Best to follow PLEC's instructions to the letter I guess.lynn24 wrote: ↑Aug 24th, 2017 8:24 amGoing in next week to PLEC to get it done... Any last minute pieces of advice for speedy recovery/safe post-operative navigating?
Also, PLEC said 7 days for BCL removal but my optometrist said he can do it as such, but typically he checks at 5 and it's fine... Did anyone here (burnt69? peanutz? aznsilvrboy?) do the full 7? Does PLEC actually care?
Shouldn't be any problem "post-operative navigating" if you're leaving the day after the surgery. Just familiarize yourself with the Skytrain/Canada Line map/station so you know how to get to the airport. I used the City Hall / W. Broadway station I think. Make sure you are well hydrated, especially after flying -- this is very important for the measurements needed for the surgery.
Good luck! Chutney Villa on E. Broadway if you need awesome Indian food!
