Hair around eye is gone

My male dog just was neutered and following surgery after he was home a week I noticed that the hair around his one eye is missing and thin -Is this due to the eye pads used during surgery?? He is not itching the area. And will the hair come back and will it take a long time? bThank you

Sorry to here about the eye.  Typically during surgery, we do not use anything on the eyes though this may vary from veterinarian to veterinarian.  In a young dog, we do see a certain type of mange called demodex that can manifest itself in hair loss around the eyes.  I would recommend calling your veterinarian so they can look at the eye to determine if a further work up would be warranted or will this resolve on it's own.  

Good luck.
