anyone knows why eye surgery is known to be contraindication for performing spirometry? Is this connected to increasing pressure in thorax and obstructing venous return from head face and neck?

Increases peripheral venous pressure, especially in the face/eyes. No good for healing that delicate vasculature right after being sutured up. Lymphatics in that area have a hard enough time as is after trauma.
