    No, you had better stop cooking for at least one week after the cataract surgery. This is because that when you are cooking, there will be much steam of water and oil which can easily get into your eyes, making your eyes uncomfortable. Sometimes the boiled oil may even get inot your eyes. Besides, there can be other irritative smell during the cooking that can cause discomfort in your eyes. And if the condition is serious, the effects of the cataract surgery can be badly damaged. Therefore, you should not cook after the surgery. In addition, do not lift heavy things or bend down to pick up things and so on.

    Generally speaking, the situation various person to person, but the answer is certainly yes, you can cook after cataract surgery. However, you'd better do it after 3 to 4 weeks at least in consideration of your recovery. As we know that after the cataract surgery, your eyes are sensitive and very fragile, so it can be harmful in the kitchen while the lampblack might stem from eyes infected or even other eye diseases as well. Moreover, there are still a few things you should pay more attention to during this time. For example, you should avoid eye injuries by wearing a protective shield at night and with naps. Besides, you should remember not sleep on the side of the operated eye for the first night. Following these tips above, i am sure you will get restored to health shortly after.

    No, you can not, this can be very bad to your eyes. your eyes are very weak after this surgery. And you really need time to get them recovered instead of damaging them. Actually, there are some instructions that your need to know after this surgery. Never wear contacts after this surgery cuz this can give you an eye infection quite easily and you may even go blind cuz of this. And cook is also forbidden after it, the heat will damage your eyes. If it is convenient for you, you had better wear youe sunglasses everywhere. This is all I can tell you. Good luck!

    You shall not cook right after the cataracts surgery for the quick heal of your eyes. You are suggested to close your eyes and have a good rest of about 24 hours. Besides, you shall not let water into your eyes when you wash face and take a shower. In addition, sports activities shall keep far away from you at least a week. If go to the sun, you shall also prepare a pair of sunglasses to shield them from sunshine as well as glares so as to help the heal of your eyes.
