What should I expect after lens replacement?
SAMER HAMADA EXPLAINS WHAT PATIENTS CAN EXPECT AFTER LENS REPLACEMENT SURGERY
Recovery after lens replacement surgery is very quick. Usually the eye heals within a couple of days. It takes a week before you can be back to your normal life. Normally if you want to swim or do heavy exercises, we ask you to defer it for four weeks after the operation.
Because lens replacement surgery is like a cataract operation, you no longer need cataract surgery in the future.
The outcomes you achieve at the end of four to six weeks after the operation are very likely to stay with you for life.

If you’re considering going back to work or even flying very straight after surgery, that is possible, provided that you look after the health of your eyes. We require that the environment where you work in is clean, so you minimize the risk of infection after the operation. It depends on your job. Most people go back to work within a few days after the operation.
