What Patients Feel During and After Cataract Surgery?

On the day of surgery, the patients are a bit apprehensive. They eat, take a head bath, and come for surgery. Cleaning of the eyes is performed both in the waiting area and in the operating room.

Just before surgery starts anesthetic drops are instilled in the eyes. During surgery, the patient is advised to look straight ahead. Surgery is not long and lasts about 10 to 15 minutes. Most can see swirling colors and waves during the actual surgery. The cataract is broken into small pieces and using a vacuum removed out of the eye. The intraocular lens is placed in the eye. No cuts are made only entry with small blades are done. After surgery vision is a bit blurred especially because dilating drops have been instilled in the eyes. But gross vision is present. Drops are started immediately after the surgery.

Generally by evening or the next day vision starts improving rapidly and the effect of the medicines used during surgery wears off. Most feel that colors have become bright and what was appearing faded and yellowish before becomes whiter. Modern cataract surgery is one of the wonders and restores our eyesight, which is the most important of our five senses.

Overall cataract surgery is a pleasant experience for the patient and one of the most successful surgeries on the human body.
