One would not normally need to specifically clean the eye after surgery. Any amount of travel is absolutely fine provided one remembers to apply the eye drops. Timings will be given for the application of the eye drops, but an hour this way or that does not cause any problem.
One would not normally need to specifically clean the eye after surgery. Mopping the face with a wet towel (with the eyes closed) should suffice. If there are deposits of medicines on the eyelids or lashes one could use fresh ear buds, moisten them with an antibiotic eye drops and clean the outside of the […]
We use highly specialized equipment (Immersion A-Scan) to predict the IOL power to be implanted. Even then, there is a small possibility of a minor error in the IOL power. This leaves a residual spectacle power which would need to be corrected with glasses.
The vision will be bright and pretty much clear the day after surgery. Full vision will be restored gradually in a few days time. Objects may appear excessively bright & blue in colour for some days. This is because the cataract was not allowing light to reach the retina and most of the blue light […]
One should avoid water from directly getting into the eyes for 10 days after surgery. One could sponge the hair and face properly even the day after surgery. Normal bathing (taking precautions for the eye) can be resumed the day after surgery. After 10 days one can be completely normal. Bending down, chewing food or […]
One can resume work even the day after surgery. One could either work from home or office, but one should remember to apply the drops as advised. Normally till the glass correction is given 4-6 weeks after surgery, reading may be difficult, but this is much better after implantation of a multifocal IOL. Temporary glasses […]
There is a graded schedule for eye drops after surgery. No tablets / injections are used. One would start with 3 types of eye drops, which would be stopped over a period of 6 weeks.
There is no need for bed rest after surgery. One can walk, eat normally, watch TV and be normal around home on the day of the surgery. One needs some protective glasses only when outdoors.
Cataract surgery is pretty much painless and so is the post-operative period. There is mild irritation (or foreign body) sensation for a few days. There may be mild redness & watering of the eyes which again subside in a few days.
Surgery is a “walk in- walk out” procedure. Surgery is mostly done under topical anaesthesia. Anaesthetic drops numb the surface of the eye and the surgery can be comfortably and painlessly performed. The eye remains open after surgery. Some patients may require an anaesthetic injection before the surgery. A routine surgery lasts approximately 10 minutes […]
