After cataract surgery
Read & Share
Once the surgery is done, the healing process begins right away. You’ll want to make sure to avoid getting water or dust directly in the eye and take all drops as prescribed. It may also be helpful to wear your shield at night to avoid inadvertently rubbing the eye during sleep. You may have some scratchiness and slight discomfort, but that should improve over the course of the first week. Your vision will improve quickly, though you may need some glasses for the best vision possible.
