Riding after cataract surgery
Hubby's having his first cataract surgery (right eye) on March 13. He opted for the Toric corrective lens to correct his severe astigmatism and improve distance vision. The doctor explained he'll probably need glasses for close-up reading and computer use, so he's excited about the possibility of not having to wear tri-focals every waking hour of the day (he started wearing bi-focals when he was 15).
I've seen comments from some here saying they rode the day after surgery, but his surgeon cautioned against that until at least a week. We appreciate his cautious approach and he's willing to abide by his guidelines.
Mainly, we're wondering about the typical post-op activities and how others adjusted to riding after the first implant and again after the second. He'll have the second surgery soon after the first one heals.
