The next day, my mum went back to Dr Natasha Lim Eye Centre for the same procedure on her right ‘non- master’ eye that also had a custom fit Toric Mono-focal lens implant, this time it was specially tailored for her to provide long hours of reading.
No Downtime After Operation
With the type of stitchless, small-incision cataract surgery my mum had, there was no downtime, although my mum mentioned that her eyes felt slightly tired.
Second-day post-op: my mum was told she could shower and wash hair as per normal. You can steam, fry and BBQ or do any exercise from the second day onwards. This was because she had a micro-incisional cataract surgery which healed immediately.
However, she was advised not to use make up for three days following her op, so some people may prefer to take medical/hospitalisation leave for a few days and rest at home.
