After surgery, you’ll be prescribed eye drops that guard against infection and aid in the healing process. It is very important to follow the eye drop schedule given by your surgeon and Vision Care Specialist. Avoid rubbing your eyes, lifting heavy objects, and swimming for the first two weeks following surgery. Every patient will go through a series of post-op visits for several weeks following advanced cataract surgery to make sure the eye is healing properly.
Recovery time after surgery is generally quick and usually occurs within a few days. Most patients notice better vision soon after surgery and continue to see improvement in their vision over the following weeks.
