Contact lenses can be worn after cataract surgery
Depending on what kind of cataract surgery you have had it may take some time for the eye to heal after cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery generally involves one or more incision into the eye either from the sclera or the clear cornea.
It is important to wait for these incisions to heal completely before wearing contact lenses.
Typically after cataract surgery eye drops are prescribed for about 2-4 weeks. These drops may cause sensitivity and prevent you from wearing contact lenses.
It is advisable to wait for about 2-4 weeks before you resume wearing contact lenses after cataract surgery.
