Question: I am 45 years old. I had a cataract surgery 4 days ago. Now i have following observations.
1. My right eye was operated.Earlier I had uveitis to my right eye. Since last month I had a blurry vision.
doctor advised for cataract operation. I underwent it.
2. He replaced my original lens with Acrylic Toric cylindrical lens.
3.Surgery was successful .I am putting Drops - Megabrome and Gatilox twice a day.
Now my vision of right eye is much clear. No redness, no watering, no itching complaint of right eye. Doctor examined eye very next day evening. Every thing was found to be normal. He said after a week I will get the new spectacle number. I resumed the office today.
4.Only thing is now I can not read. When My both the eyes will be normal? Right now I feel the objects to be too bright. I was told only not to rub the eyes, and not to take a head bath for 15 days and not to wash face for a week. No other precautions.Doctor said may be for a month you may feel eye watering, itching sensation. But it is normal.
5. Are this acrylic lenses durable ? What is a difference between laser treatment for cataract and lens replacement?

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I reviewed your history and the previous questions you had asked me on Health care Magic.

It is nice and good to hear that you are doing well after cataract surgery.

Near vision or reading is not possible after cataract surgery as there is no accommodation and hence this requires spectacles for near vision.
Hence no need to be worried about it with spectacles you will be fine and this is normal after cataract surgery.
Acrylic lenses are fine and no problems will occur with these.

Floaters are not related to cataract surgery and there is no effective treatment available for floaters also, but these will decrease slowly and no need to be worried about them.

Laser treatment for cataract is not present it is laser assisted cataract surgery and in this procedure also intraocular lens is implanted.

Post cataract surgery precautions are same as suggested by your doctor like,

No head bath for 2 weeks.
Not to wash the operated eye or rub the eye.
To use the eye drops as advised by your doctor.
To consult your doctor if there is pain, redness or diminution of vision


Hope this answers your question and the information is helpful to you.

Thanks for urgent reply.
1. I am given protective plastic white coloured goggle. I resumed the office today.
I can not see clearly when i am using this plastic goggle. I am not feeling comfortable . Feeling concious about the right eye.
2. Even i cant watch computer or read clearly. Doctor said that he will give spectacle after a week.
3. I feel very afraid because my vision is too bright.
4. When start watching T.V. or computer without spects , i feel that i am giving stress to my eyes. But I can see the bright colours. Of course floaters are troubling me a bit.
5. I hope i can continue the office work without giving much strain to eyes. I am using sunglasses while travelling or going in hot sun.
I am taking necessary precautions as u have directed.
6 When can I watch T.V. or U tube and computer for longer time without giving stress to my eyes?? How many hours I should sleep daily to give relief to my eyes?
Am I taking over care ? Are these natural things that after operation it will take time to adjust the vision with surroundings?
Pl suggest necessary remedies.

Brief Answer:
You can resume watching computers for long-time after 2 weeks.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.

The protective plastic glasses are meant for protection of the eye immediately following surgery till the wound of surgery heals.
This will take around 2 weeks.
Hence after this spectacles are prescribed.
With spectacles all your problems will be solved and you will be fine.

After 2 weeks you can resume watching computer for long time and other activities.
Daily sleep of 8 hours is necessary for good health of eyes.

Hope this answers your question and the information is helpful to you.
