Some Steps to Take to Minimize Recovery Time After Cataract Surgery


The aim of cataract surgery is to remove your eye’s natural lens that are already cloudy due to a cataract and then replace it with a clear artificial lens. Uncomplicated cataract surgery usually takes less than 10 minutes to perform, but you will need to rest up for about 30 minutes to one hour after the procedure. This is to ensure that you don’t feel groggy from sedation or from the anesthesia you were injected with before you get up to go home. As a precaution, it is better to have someone drive you home.

Some patients can see very well the day after surgery, but many usually experience cloudy, blurred, or distorted vision for a few days. Some people also reach maximum vision improvement a full month after surgery. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2po81D9

Fruits & Veggies for Lasik Surgery After-Care

Lasik eye surgery may be quick and effective, but it can also be tough on your eyes. After all, it does get rid of some of their tissue and alter their shape.

Help your eyes recover from surgery by eating more of these eye-friendly fruits and vegetables. Don’t worry; we won’t bore you by listing the same old carrots.

Oranges and grapefruits

Leafy green vegetables are often recommended for eye care because they’re rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, which – aside from vitamin A and beta-carotene – are linked to all things good for the eyes. Oranges and grapefruits, however, are also rich in these – and make for better-tasting shakes and juice.

Green and red peppers

Yes, these are vegetables, and like oranges and grapefruits, are rich in vitamin C – a nutrient you may not know is also wonderful for the eyes. With these, you can indulge your need for spice while maintaining your healthcare needs.

Like its better-known cousin, vitamin A, vitamin C helps lower risks for vision deterioration. Its boost to the immune system can also come in handy after surgery.

Kale

Kale hasn’t been as widely popular as spinach. But like it, and the others on this list, it’s rich in lutein and zeaxanthin. It can also be made into chips, so you won’t have to eat it as is, if you’re not big on vegetarianism in the first place.

Just remember: You can’t just keep these fruits and vegetables in your diet in the months after lasik eye surgery. Keep eating them well beyond your recovery time, and you can help the effects of surgery last longer by maintain optimum ophthalmological health.
