  • Many people ignore the rulebook to be followed
    post-cataract surgery. Some consider appointing a
    house help to take care of the household chores,
    but there is a lot more than the eyes meet. So,
    Mumbai's best cataract surgeon in Santa Cruz has
    curated the do's and don'ts of cataract surgery
    recovery to help people worldwide seek faster,
    safer, and easy ways of the healing process.
  • In this blog, we will discuss the precautions,
    tips, and recovery time of cataract surgery. The
    recovery process is often short and
    uncomplicated. The patient should aim for
    maintaining good health and must relax to avoid
    major eye problems post-surgery.
  • Tips for a speedy recovery
  • Don't drive home on your own after the surgery
  • Avoid heavy lifting an object or exercises that
    could strain your muscles
  • Avoid bending or putting additional pressure on
    your eyes immediately after the surgery
  • If possible, avoid sneezing too hard, as it can
    put excess pressure on the eye muscles
  • While walking, be extra careful to prevent
    bumping into doors or sharp objects
  • Avoid swimming or using a hot tub bath to prevent
    an eye infection
  • Wear sunglasses before stepping out to prevent
    dust, pollen, and germs from entering your eyes
  • Never rub your eyes. If there's itchiness,
    consider washing them with cold water and dab the
    excess water with a clean towel.
  • You can watch TV or work in front of the computer
    screen but maintain a safe distance and avoid
    prolonged usage of screens even if you have
    healed completely.

  • Complications Post-Cataract Surgery
  • If your vision seems cloudy or blurry immediately
    after the surgery, don't panic. Your visual
    system needs some time to adjust to the new
    artificial lens placed via surgery. This
    adaptation period may last for 1-2 hours.
  • There can be some red blood shots in the eyes
    because your blood vessels may get temporarily
    damaged due to the cataract surgery. When the
    eyes start healing, the redness fades away with
    each passing day.
  • If your eye doctor used anesthesia via injection
    before performing the surgery, you might witness
    bruises around the lower portion of the eyes. The
    bruises or black tone fade away with time.

  • Every patient heals differently. If your vision
    is not restored within 1-2 hours, do not panic.
    Some patients require a week-long period to
    regain their sharp vision. It is best to seek the
    advice of our eye doctor in Santa Cruz, who can
    guide you with all your eye-related concerns.
  • Also, never skip or delay your follow-up
    appointments with the doctor. A follow-up
    appointment scheduled by the doctor allows them
    to closely monitor your healing journey and
    suggest necessary tips and medications for a
    speedy recovery.
  • Some patients complain of having dry eyes or
    scratchiness in the eye. But, this sensation as
    got nothing to worry about, as with time, it
    fades away.
  • The cataract surgery recovery should get
    completed within 12 months. To learn more about
    cataract surgery and alternative treatment
    options, kindly consult Dr. Priya Sawant, a
    leading eye specialist with skills and expertise
    to help people protect and preserve their vision
    for a lifetime.
