It depends on the type of surgery you had, your current eye health, and your eye care professional recommendation. Right after the surgery, like in a month or two, you should not wear contact because that’s the healing period, and during the healing period, wearing a contact lens can limit your recovery.

In general, people wear contact lenses even after complex eye surgeries. Your doctor could tell you about that after thoroughly examining your condition.
