    Working on a laptop after cataract operation

    After how many days can you start working on computer after having cataract operation?

    After cataract+Intra-ocular Lens Implant surgery done by Phaco-emulsification technique you can start working on a computer from the next day. We recommend use of dark glasses though. Some surgeons prefer rest for a week before resuming computer work.

      That's not necessarily true... if she had a Crystalens, she could make herself hyperopic by working on a laptop.

    It depends on what type of implant you had. If you had the standard implant that is single focus (meaning you can only see clearly at distance and need reading glasses), yes you can use your laptop.

    However, if you had the Crystalens, which is a multifocal implant (meaning you can see at all different distances) then it is highly recommended that you DO NOT use your laptop, or other computer and absolutely no reading. This is required to allow the lens to seat properly in the lens capsule. For more information, you should read my hub on cataract surgery.
