    Well, according to some doctors, you should not smoke after the corneal transplant. If you keep smoking during the recovery process, it will just make your eyes worse. Generally speaking, after the surgery, you need to be careful about your eyes, for your eyes are more fragile than before. Through smoking, it will lead to more serious problems. For example, it will just make your eyes become swollen, and swelling. In that way, it will affect the recovery and slow down the healing progress. Maybe you can put cucumbers on your eyes and do not smoke weed. So just avoid it.
