Cataract Surgery Recovery

By EyeClinicAdmin October 3, 2016

Cataract Surgery RecoveryOver time, age and metabolic changes to the eye can cause the development of cataracts and loss of transparency, impairing vision.  Patients often report symptoms that include glare from lights, especially at night.  Cataract surgery involves the removal of the natural lens of the eye and replacing it with a synthetic lens to restore the lens’s transparency.

A highly-qualified ophthalmologist from The Eye Clinic Surgicenter in Billings will perform your cataract surgery.  Local anesthesia is used.  Patients usually experience little or no discomfort and over 90 percent of surgeries are successful in restoring useful vision.  Post-op recovery is quick.  The use of an eye patch may be necessary for several hours.  Antibiotic eye drops are typically recommended to control inflammation and prevent infection.

Cataract surgery has a low complication rate.  For more information, please call The Eye Clinic Surgicenter at 406-252-6608 or
