Benefits of premium cataract surgery
Premium cataract surgeries tend to be safer and gentler. You will benefit by receiving better results than you would after standard eye surgery. Because the incision is smaller, healing is also quicker.
Once the cataract is softened by the laser, it becomes easier to remove. This means there is less risk of damaging the tissues surrounding the cataract. The surgeon can then insert your chosen lens, which, in some cases, may eliminate the need for glasses for many daily activities.
Premium cataract surgeries have a similar recovery time to general cataract surgery. They are both similar in that you should wear a protective eye shield after the surgery for hours or days at a time. This will keep you from getting anything in the eye or accidentally rubbing it.
Your surgeon can prescribe medication, like an anti-inflammatory or antibiotic to help with the healing process. You must attend a follow-up appointment with the surgeon within the next day of the surgery.
An uncomfortable feeling is normal but should only last a few days. Many people experience an improvement in their vision straight after the surgery. Still, it is also normal to have blurred vision initially.
Depending on the severity of your cataract, your eye may take weeks to a month to heal. After healing, your surgeon or optometrist will examine your eyes to ensure that they achieved your desired vision and whether or not you require a glasses prescription.
