Dr. Tom : Hello again, and thanks for responding. Give me a minute to type a response and then you and I can continue to chat.
Dr. Tom : The first thing that you should know is that you should not be particularly concerned about the redness. Your surgery was Just about a week ago and it is not surprising that you still have some redness. The redness is very much like a bruise. Your Body will resorb the blood. If the bruises were under the skin of your arm, for example, it would look purple. On the surface of The eye it looks red. But don't worry it will go away in time. There isn't any medication that you can use to hurry up the process. Does that make sense? Do you have any other concerns.
