What should I expect after cataract surgery?

Cataract surgery is a relatively quick and simple procedure, but it will take a few days before the patient begins noticing improvements in vision. A patient may experience some mild itching and discomfort, but these side effects usually subside after a few days. Follow-up appointments with your ophthalmologist or surgeon will ensure healing is progressing as expected. Usually, the eye will completely heal in about 2 months.
