I have been diagnosed with premature cataracts . The distance
Thanks for sending your query to us.
If you have cataract, it is not going to go away with any medication, so delay is not supposed to help you. Furthermore, the unaffected eye will start deteriorating at some stage, which will cause problem.This eye has to become good before the other starts deteriorating. So you have no reason to delay the surgery.
Do get back to me in case of any further queries in this regard.
Good of you to get back to me.
Most of patients are fully fit by the end of week.I have had patients who joined work the next day.There are some individual issues,but if it's a maximum of a week,that too should be manageable.
I personally do not prefer an operable cataract to be postponed for months.There are 3 reasons,postponement of surgery may lead to glaucoma,surgery is more difficult and lastly you have another few months of incapacitation.
Postponement is permissible depending upon the hardness of cataract,which the doctors decide when they examine you.
