• Can I use my glasses 12 days after cataract surgery?


    Question:

    I had cataract surgery 12 days ago, but my sight is still cloudy. Is it OK to use my old glasses from before the surgery?


    Answer:

    Some post-cataract patients see well in just a few days after surgery, but it is not uncommon for vision to still be cloudy. Keep up with the drops as prescribed and call your surgeon if you have concerns to get an earlier follow-up visit if necessary. Pain or a sudden drop in vision would be more of an urgent concern. Your glasses will probably not correct your vision, but if you find them useful there is no harm.
