Following cataract surgery, most patients can expect their vision to improve within a few days, although complete adaptation to the new implants might take up to two weeks. There are different types of implants available, such as Monofocal, Multifocal, Accommodative, and Toric lenses.
For those with multifocal lenses, the recovery period might be longer due to potential issues like glare and halos around lights, which can take weeks to months to resolve. Moreover, these patients may experience reduced contrast sensitivity, making it challenging to discern between similar shades in their daily activities.
Another common side effect after cataract surgery is foggy vision. However, with time and proper post-operative care, most patients can expect these issues to improve and achieve a clearer, more satisfactory vision in the long run.
