Good Afternoon Doctor,

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Cataract is a condition where the lens of the eye becomes cloudy which causes blurred vision. This condition can be caused by various things, but most often it is due to the aging process.


There are no dietary restrictions for people who have just had cataract surgery, but if your mother also has diabetes, then avoid sweet foods and if you also have high blood pressure, reduce salt consumption.


However, there are restrictions on activities for people after cataract surgery, namely:

Don't drive on the first day
Don't lift heavy objects or overwork for a few weeks
Don't bend down on the first day
Avoid vomiting or sneezing and coughing on the first day
Avoid swimming or bathing in the first week
Don't scratch your eyes until you're declared recovered
Avoid dust, wind and other things that can irritate the eyes


Regarding the actual recovery period, it varies from person to person depending on the body's resistance. Some make a full recovery in a few days, others take up to 2 weeks. What is clear, always check with the mother's ophthalmologist for supervision of postoperative developments. I hope you and your family are always healthy.


That's all, hope it helps.
