A member asked:

Having cataract surgery on left eye. taking 5 work day off. is that too much? left eye is my "good, seeing eye." also hav rop due to premature birth

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Eyeball awareness: Cataract surgery is considered a very low risk, day surgery procedure. You don't necessarily need 5 days, but that's up to you, your job, and your doctor. Since this is not a retinal procedure, the ROP is not going to impact this surgery which is on the outside of the eyeball.
