How Soon Can I Get New Glasses after Cataract Surgery?

I am going to have cataract surgery in next week. I heard that I should wear glasses to protect my eyes after surgery. But I don't know when I can get a pair of new glasses.

    In most cases, you will still require at least a reading prescription to do near work. If you still require a distance prescription after surgery, it will be a few weeks until the eye is stable enough to obtain this prescription

    Dear friend, you may need a pair of sunglasses other than glasses. If you had cataract surgery, your vision problem can be solved and you don't need glasses any more. But as we know that the UV rays from the sun will damage our eyes, so every one of us may need a pair of sunglasses to protect our eyes from the UV rays when we are in the outside. As to patients who just have the eye surgery, they must wear sunglasses to protect their eyes. Hope this can be helpful.

    Hey, guy! I agree with what the guy mentioned above. You can get a pair of sunglasses other than glasses before or after cataract surgery immediately. And you'd better buy a piece of eyeshade at the same time for if you want to have a rest in the daytime, you can use eyeshade to cover your eyes and protect your eyes from harsh light. Now it's the 4th anniversary celebration of Firmoo, you can choose a pair of sunglasses with great quality and competitive price online.
