Cataract surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and requires no stitches; patients go home the same day. About one week prior to the surgery, the patient undergoes pre-operative testing, including a blood test and electrocardiogram. After the surgery, the patient must wear an eye patch for the first 24 hours. Eye drops to prevent eye infection are required for the complete 2-4 week recover period. Cataract surgery is performed on only one eye at a time.
In rare cases, the skin of the cataract, which is left in the eye, can cause cloudiness of vision after the surgery. If this occurs, the cloudiness can be removed using a laser treatment.
