    No, you shall not go in the sun with naked eyes. If you have to go in the sun, you shall wear a pair of sunglasses to shield your eyes. Besides, after the surgery, you shall be very careful in your daily life. Don’t let water get into your eyes when you wash face, wash head or take a shower. IN addition, you shall avoid rough sports activities after the surgery. You may star some gentle activities at least one week and contact rough sports at least 3 to 4 weeks. What’s more, you shall not drive after the surgery till your eyes heal from the surgery for the sake of your safe.

    It does not mater much as long as you do not carry out fierce activity while you are having a picnic. Also, take care not to splash water into your eye. And do not rub or touch your eyes in order to protect your eyes from debris and injury. You can wear safety glasses or sunglasses to help protect your eyes. Enjoy yourself.
