Is it safe to fly if I have an eye condition or have had an eye operation?

Only your ophthalmologist can provide you with the right advice for your circumstances. If you have an eye condition or have recently had eye surgery, you should check with them first if it is safe to fly.

The changes in air pressure experienced during a flight might not be good for your eyes. The re-circulated air inside the cabin can also be very drying.

They may also advise against travel if you are likely to need an urgent or emergency appointment, or if you have aftercare guidelines or treatments which are tricky to follow if you are travelling.
