Cataract surgery. After cataract surgery patients recover very quickly, with good vision in one to 7 days and eye drops for about a month. You can return to normal activities the day after surgery. Restrictions are minimal, just avoiding rubbing and no swimming for a few weeks. There is scarring that holds the new lens implant in place and normal healing of the wound.
Depends. Sometimes the recovery is very fast, or it can take a long time if there are complications. Some people see perfectly the next day. It's dependent on several factors such as how much energy is used to break up the lens, how fast the surgery was completed, how healthy the eye and cornea is, etc. Usually postoperative drops are used for about 1 month.
Recovery from CS. Depending on preoperative risk factors, age, etc, it can take1-4 weeks (rarely months) for vision to recover after cataract surgery. Pain usually takes about 1 weeks to resolve completely. Drops are usually continued for 4wks-months depending on preop factors. More info: firstname.lastname@example.org.
