What to Expect After Cataract Surgery
After cataract surgery, expect your vision to begin improving within a few days. Your vision may be blurry at first as your eye starts to heal and adjust. Colors may seem brighter after your surgery as you are looking through a new, clear lens.
A cataract is usually yellow- or brown-tinted before surgery, which mutes the way you see colors. It's normal to feel itching and mild discomfort for a couple of days after surgery. Avoid rubbing or pushing on your eye. After a couple of days, most of the discomfort should disappear. Generally, complete healing occurs within eight weeks.
