After Your Cataract Surgery

Following cataract surgery, most of the healing occurs within three months. During that time, it is important to visit your ophthalmologist and use the eyedrops as prescribed. If you have had an intraocular lens implanted and have no complications, you will notice improved vision in a week, or even sooner.

You can get temporary glasses shortly after the surgery, but your final eyeglass or contact lens will not be ordered until most of the healing is completed.
