Surgery usually takes maximum half an hour but the entire process may take 2-3 hours. Before & after surgery, we do some tests and eye-check-up by doctor.
Most patients? vision is quite blurred after the surgery due to dilating drops and the bright microscope lights. What should I bring with me on the day of surgery? Here is the list of things that we recommend you bring to Eye-Q on the day of surgery:
  • Friend or family member (someone to help with paperwork, driving home, etc.)
  • Medicare or insurance papers
  • Current prescription glasses (even if not worn presently)
  • Physician medical consent
  • Any prescribed medicines & details of prescription including dosage and strength
  • Sweater or jacket if required
  • Lunch or snack

Most patients may leave within a few hours after the surgery.

What happens before I?m discharged?

  • After the surgery, we will take you to post-op room to relax for some time.
  • We will check your pulse and blood pressure
  • We will check your eye pressure and explain your postoperative instructions and medications to you and a friend or family member.
  • Afterward, an attending eye surgeon will examine your eye or we will make arrangements to check you the following day.
You?ve had a microscopic incision on the surface of your eye. When you blink, you may feel a slightly scratchy sensation until the incision heals. Scratchiness is also a symptom of dry eyes. After surgery, our patients find that using artificial tears helps to alleviate the symptoms.
Wearing your old glasses will not harm your eyes, but since the prescription won't be optimal for your surgery eye, you will probably see best without them. Most patients feel comfortable by only wearing glasses while reading.
Most cataract surgery patients enjoy a significant improvement in their vision after 5-7 days. You may drive when you feel comfortable.
Your implant is a single-focus lens. If your lens was chosen for distance vision, you will need reading glasses. Some patients elect to have one eye focused for close vision so they can read without glasses. However, this may compromise distant vision. We now can offer you the recently introduced multifocal lenses also by which you can have both distant and near vision. Doctor will recommend best lens suitable as per your eye.
Generally, we do eye check-up one day post-surgery. If you plan to go home immediately after surgery, please make arrangements for a qualified doctor to provide follow-up care in your area.
It might be possible that there is some discomfort with eye drops being prescribed. You should continue to use your eye drops. However, if your discomfort seems to be worsening, or you experience a decrease in vision, consult doctor at Eye-Q.
Yes, for few hours as pupil gets dilated during surgery. After the dilation wears off, your vision will return to normal.
Glare may be caused by many factors. A slight need for glasses (refractive error) is one of the most common reasons you may notice slight glare at night. Also, some patients experience minor corneal swelling after surgery that may cause temporary glare.
Patients with cataracts see their world through a yellow tint. It?s just like wearing yellow-tinted (?blue-blocker?) sunglasses. These glasses block colors from the lower end of the color spectrum like blues and violets. When the cataract is removed and replaced with a clear implant, you will see these unfamiliar colors again. This may be much more dramatic for some patients than others, depending on the cataract.
