Question:
I will be having surgery for droopy eyes. How soon after the surgery can I drive or do my usual bending over and such?     

Answer:
In general, one can drive the day after droopy eyelid surgery. However, we suggest that one does not bend or perform any heavy lifting for a week to ten days after surgery.
