Cataract surgeries are quite short, lasting less than 15 to 30 minutes or so. Extra time may be needed for post-surgery evaluation and instructions. To quickly recover from your Ohio cataract surgery, we recommend the following recovery tips:
- Have someone drive you home after the surgery. Do not ever attempt to drive until your eye doctor has tested your vision and confirmed that you can already drive.
- Avoid strenuous activities, particularly heavy lifting, within the first week of surgery. Bending and similar exercises should be avoided as well.
- Avoid swimming in pools or using public saunas during the first 2 weeks to prevent infection.
- Eye redness and blurred vision are a common occurrence during the first few days of the procedure.
- Avoid activities that will expose your eyes to grime, dust, and contaminants which could could injure/infect the eyes.
- Wear protective eyewear as prescribed, even while sleeping and napping.
- Adhere to medication regimens such as the number of times that you need to apply eye drops.
