Adapter: For patients in the UK or Ireland, it is important that you include your adapter for plugs.
Personal items: photos of family, friends, etc., that help you connect with yours even in the distance
Entertainment – The first few days after surgery is mostly about rest. So bring items so you can relax and spend time like your laptop, books, music, magazines, etc.
Comfortable, wide clothing and pajamas: after the surgery you will wear certain bandages, so we recommend that you bring clothes with wide collars (not tight), better jackets with zippers. Comfort is key in the first days.
Corrective makeup: bruises are frequent for up to a week. We recommend bringing corrective makeup to cover your blue spots if you don’t want to attract too much attention.
Scarf: if you want to take a walk around or go to the nearby park, also when you return home a scarf is very useful to cover your face and make you feel more comfortable.
Sunglasses: will help you hide puffy or bruised eyes.
Your glasses: For surgery around the forehead and eyes, you will not be able to wear your contact lenses for some time. Your glasses are essential in those cases
