• How long after my cataract operation will it take for the stitch to dissolve?


    Question:

    How long after my cataract operation will it take for the stitch to dissolve?


    Answer:

    If a suture is used in cataract surgery in most cases it would be a nylon suture which does not dissolve on its own. These often need not be removed because they generally do not cause any reaction inside the eye.
