Following your cataract surgery procedure at our Toronto practice, your cataract surgeon will provide you with thorough post-operative instructions to ensure a safe and speedy recovery. You will be given a protective eye shield to be worn at bedtime for five nights, as well as antibiotic and steroid eye drops to be used for three weeks. It is important to avoid getting water in the eyes for the first two weeks following surgery. Most Toronto cataract surgery patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days of the procedure. If necessary, a new glass lens will be prescribed three weeks after surgery.
