The laser surgical procedure for cataract correction typically takes around 30 minutes, and you can expect an hour or two of recovery afterward.
In general, your surgeon will follow these steps:
A minor incision is made on the cornea using a handheld blade or LASER.
Next, a small probe or LASER will break up and remove your cataracts.
Generally, no stitches are required as the incision is so small.
If needed a bandage or patch may be placed on your eye and can usually be removed in a few hours.
AFTER CATARACT SURGERY
Laser Cataract surgery recuperation will vary from person to person, but generally, you can expect to see the next day. You'll be able to return to normal activity within a day, but many surgeons will suggest that you hold off from driving for about 24 hours or so.
AFTER THE SURGERY, YOUR SURGEON WILL USUALLY MENTION:
Any medications or eye drops they prescribe for you
Instructions on how to care for your eyes
Arranging a follow-up appointment – usually the next day
It's not unusual to experience a stinging or abrasive feeling after surgery, and you can expect that after a day or so, any moderate discomfort should disappear. Avoid rubbing or putting any pressure on your eyes. Easy activities, like reading, watching your favorite show or movie, or taking an evening walk are okay, but avoid overdoing it. Heavy lifting, running and the like should be held off for at least a week.
