How long after having my cataracts removed does it take to see clearly and for my eyes to heal completely?Eye Health Cataracts
How is vision after cataract surgery? How long does it take for my eyes to heal after a cataract surgery?
All my patients after cataract surgery see very well (6/6) on the first day after surgery. Although I tell my patients that they can expect a further improvement in their vision in the first week, most of them already do see very well from day 1.
Most patients feel completely normal in the first week after cataract surgery. They can resume most of their normal activities except for strenuous sports and swimming with their head underwater. Complete recovery is 1 month after surgery as the wound takes time to heal.
