Cataract Surgery

1. Is cataract operated with laser?

The cataract is not laser operated.

2. Can I have a surgery without installing a lens?

The lens is necessary when operating cataract. Blurred eye lens is replaced with one that allows you to see where dioptre is a thing of the past. A new clear lens is being installed. Be sure to visit us for an examination because your eyesight shouldn’t be blurred.

3. How long will my eye be closed after cataract surgery?

The eye is usually closed until you arrive home after the cataract surgery. If both eyes are operated, a protective lens in put on the eyes and they aren’t closed at all.

4. Can I exercise after lens implantation?

Light exercises such as treadmill and stationary bike can be started 2-3 weeks after the procedure but sweat leakage should be prevented from entering the eyes with straps or dress shield. Also, you should avoid sea, and can swim again in the pool after a month. Gym and contact sports can be started a month after the procedure.
