Adding my 2-cents':
I just got a partial tarsorrhaphy reversal and the recovery time was almost nil. I was amazed that it was so easy and quick. I used antibiotic drops for 7 days following and gently pulled the lid apart a couple of times a day for the next three days. I was able to put the scleral lens in the next day. I do have little to no feeling in my eye, so I don't know if others experienced tenderness after the reversal or not. I have no tearing, and I have noticed since the reversal that I need to put drops and/or the lens in almost immediately after waking, where before I could wait an hour or so.
Like Saralynn, it took about a week for my lens to come in and I wasn't provided a temporary.
I had also tried a Blinkeze first, but not really successful; I later had the tarsorrhaphy and implanted weight. (Still have the weight and no problems with it and the lens.) Maybe you could try the Blinkeze, since you have some tearing, but I would guess you would need to be watched closely to see that your cornea is not being damaged.
Do you have to use any lubricating drops/ointment and do you cover your eye at night? If you don't have to now because of your tarsorrhaphy, that is something you may have to implement if you get it reversed.
Good luck with everything!
