Because everyone’s eyesight and anatomy is different, recovery can vary from person to person. Some people experience clear vision within a few hours of cataract surgery, while others may take up to 2 weeks to see everything in sharpest focus. You should experience complete healing and recovery within a month after your procedure.
What to expect after cataract surgery
- Common symptoms after surgery include temporary blurry vision.
- You may experience a mild foreign body sensation that will be mostly gone by the morning following your procedure.
- You will have a few restrictions, such as avoiding rubbing your eye and keeping contaminants away.

Cataract surgery can also offer the opportunity to correct other vision problems you may be experiencing. Refractive Cataract Surgery can address common vision problems such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), irregularly shaped lens (astigmatism), or diminishing ability to focus on near objects such as reading (presbyopia). Dr. Lipstock and the Lipstock LASIK & Cataract Center have been recognized as being at the forefront of Refractive Cataract Surgery for many years.
