What is recovery like after cataract surgery?
You will need to have someone drive you home and wear sunglasses to protect the treated eye from bright light. You may experience some discomfort for a few days after cataract surgery. Your vision may seem cloudy, blurry, or distorted when you remove the eye shield, but it should clear up within a few hours to a few weeks – the time it takes for vision to clear can vary widely. Full healing generally occurs within eight weeks after the procedure.
