Hi..... Most patients will experience vision improvement virtually immediately. It may take a while for the eye to settle down completely.... Patients should avoid vigorous activities for a while.... Most patients will need different glasses after their operation. The new glasses can only be determined after her vision has settled down - this can take several weeks.... Consult your ophthalmologist for further advice....
