You may have also heard of the side effects some lens replacement patients experience, such as visual fluctuations. But rest assured, these are a normal part of the healing process and are nothing to be stressed about. We are commonly asked how long our patients will be able to see normally, and fortunately the results are quick. What\u2019s the ETA for my newly improved vision? For some patients, the results are evident within a day (even hours) and they have no initial side effects after surgery. A lot of our patients revel with excitement after their surgery as they can really notice a difference. From their declining vision before, to seeing a clearer and more detailed world around them \u2013 now free from glasses or contact lenses. For the few that do experience side-effects, their eyes settle down within 1-2 weeks1. You should be back to work and normal activities within a few days and even driving once your surgeon confirms your vision is clear enough to do so (this can be as early as 48 hours). Your surgeon will provide you with anti-inflammatory2 and antibiotic eye drops which will promote healing.. This is also a great solution if you experience dry-eyes after surgery.
