L Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery scheduled for 16/3/16.

What I did before surgery was to find out more about the surgery itself and the after eye care.

Before surgery:
Applied Vigamox eyedrop 3 days earlier. Applied a drop three times a day.
Started on Zinnat and Ciprobay the day before.

After surgery:
Use goggles during bath and washing face.
Use wipes around the eyes.
No rubbing of eyes
No stooping or lifting of heavy objects or strenuous activities
No swimming.
No dusty environment.
Sun glasses.
Follow the instructions of doctor closely on usage of antibiotic and steroid eyedrops.

Thank God my L eye vision is now 6/6.  Will need to operate on the other eye soonest possible because the images from both eyes are different.  Difficult to drive at night.
