Variable: It depends on how much damage the eye sustained prior to your surgery. If the eye was otherwise in good shape, vision should return within 4 to 8 weeks. If there was damage to the retina or optic nerve visual recovery will be limited.

Not in the long term: Drops that make your eyes "white" usually contain a chemical that shrinks the blood vessels. Chronic use can lead to rebound -when the drop wears off the blood vessels become even larger - and the eye redder - then before. These drops do not remove the cause of the red eyes - they mask it. They can cause acute angle closure glaucoma with permanent loss of vision. See your eye doctor for red eyes.
