What is one supposed to do after cataract surgery
The patient is required to instill eye drops as advised. The eye drops include, an antibiotic solution to combat infection and steroids and or nonsteroidal antinflammatory eye drops to control valves and watering.
When at home, the patient is advised not to bend or lift heavy objects. Bending increases pressure in the eye. He can walk, climb stairs, and do light household chores.
He is reviewed after 1 week, 1 month and 3 month intervals. Glasses are normally prescribed at the end of 6 weeks
