While many people can be fearful and nervous about cataract eye surgery, or any surgery, it’s often the recovery time that some fear the most. The actual surgery can be straightforward, quick, and painless, but then you have to worry about doing the right or wrong things in the days and weeks after the surgery.
However, to ensure your cataract surgery goes off without a hitch, it can be worth doing some of the following things. You may then recover faster and easier than you may have thought possible.
Use Eye Drops
Immediately after your surgery, your eye doctor will have prescribed you antibiotic eye drops. These are designed to prevent infection and help with internal inflammation. While you might think your body is capable of handling infection risks on its own, it’s essential to use any eye drops prescribed to you – and follow the instructions for their use.
