   phone numbers are listed at the top of the page.
2. You can discontinue wearing the eye shield at night, unless you
   normally rub your eyes at night.
3. Avoid any extreme physical activity. You may return to limited
   physical activity. Ask Dr. Alessio about any activities you are not
   sure about.
4. You may shower, but avoid getting soap and water directly into the
   eye. Do not swim or submerge your head underwater.
5. Your next appointment will be in about a month at the Strongsville
   office. During that appointment, both eyes will be dilated and a
   prescription for glasses is usually given. Bring any eye
   medications/instructions with you. When in doubt about anything,
   please call the office or Dr. Alessio. You and your vision are very
   important to us!
