6. How Long does Cataract Surgery Take?
Cataract Surgery usually takes only 10 minutes for an eye. Normally, each eye is done one after the other, with an interval of between 3-7 days between eyes. No harm is generally done if one eye is treated, and the other treated after several days or months, depending on the patients schedule.
Normally, after the procedure, we expect the patient to wait for around half an hour in the clinic, and then go home.
7. What Precautions do I need after Cataract Surgery? Do I need to stay in the Hospital?
After Cataract Surgery, there are a number of medications, in the form of eye drops and tablets, that the patient will need to use. The staff at the Centre will explain the various medications and their frequency.
No special precautions need be taken, other that to avoid touching the eye, and rubbing of the eyes. Also, it would be a good idea to avoid contact with individuals with active infections of the eye or other areas of the body. No dietary or travel restrictions need to be observed.
There is no need to stay at the hospital.
