Description

In most cases, recovering from cataract surgery is uneventful and requires little down time.

Functional vision will return in several days, and glasses may be worn to augment recovery for a few weeks.

Recovery after your cataract surgery is usually uneventful and fairly rapid. The first night of your surgery, we will ask you to keep the patch and shield in place and then we will see you back in the office the next morning. At that time, we will do an examination and look at the wound, be sure that there are no signs of infection. You will be provided a prescription for several eye drops and a protective shield to wear at night for several weeks. Usually the visual rehabilitation is fairly rapid. Most patients regain functional vision within several days and if necessary, glasses can be prescribed after three to four weeks. Modern day cataract surgery is now performed as an outpatient under a local or topical anesthetic. This means that on the night of your surgery, you will be able to go home and spend the first night in your own bed. After cataract surgery, normal activities with modification can usually be resumed on the first postoperative day.
