I was able to drive the day after the 2nd eye. I suggest strongly that you do all the shopping for the week in between your surgeries so that you will not need to go out. It means doing some extra planning and using the freezer.

Good luck with you. Having those surgeries was one of the best things I've ever done for myself.

Various sites say no exercising. Does that mean you need to be a couch potato or are they talking about heavy lifting, while walking, using a low-impact stepper, or elliptical is OK?

Thumbs down Results using Can-C eye drops

Hello. Has anyone else tries Can-C eye drops for cataracts? The makers claim that these drops will clear cataracts, and have testimonials that claim cures. However I have just completed a six month course of these with absolutely no success what so ever. In fact my vision is worse now than when I started. Very disappointing as the manufacturers claim that they are successful in the treatment of cataracts, and they are expensive, but they just do not work.

I never used this product but work with Crystalline drops (homeopathic) and at 80 doing good with cataract control, none here, I see good -- great colors, no issues, plus my antioxidants for general health and eye supports. Crystalline drops are very affordable.

It means to refrain from doing anything that could potentially cause excess strain or jarring which could possibly tear or open the incision site. Keep in mind that the eye is not stationary. It uses muscles to move around and the iris contracts and expands. That doesn't mean becoming a couch potato. It just means giving the eye time to heal. And that means staying off exercise equipment and don't lift anything heavier than a few pounds. Walking should be okay for short periods of time at a relaxed easy pace, but avoid moderate to faster paces until after the eye is healed. Best to ask the physician although you'd likely be informed about about the dos and don'ts after the initial evaluation and your decision approving to undergo surgery.

Default Ice Cream Pain

Cataract surgery rt. eye three months ago. Pain since that time reminds me of being a kid with too much ice cream in the mouth jammed up against the palate. Result: pain below the eye, and jaw. This cataract pain is not as severe as that ice cream pain from long ago but same location. Vision not disturbed .... so far.


Cataract surgery left eye three weeks ago. Floater developed two days ago. Looks like a small piece of black thread that moves around. Uh oh. Luckily, I have a follow-up appt. with eye MD next week.
