Keeping Intraocular Pressure Down After Cataract Surgery
When you have cataracts, it means that the natural lenses of your eyes are cloudy or opaque. This can cause a significant decrease in vision, both centrally and peripherally, and it may also cause you to see halos around bright lights when driving at night. Eye surgeons can remove cataracts and replace them with plastic intraocular lens implants, which will enhance your vision. While cataract surgery is considered a minimally invasive procedure, you'll need to take steps to keep your intraocular pressure from getting too high following your procedure, as this will help promote healing.
