Cataract for both eyes
Cataract is detected in both the eyes. Is it recommended for both eyes operation in one time or separately? If separate what is minimum gap for operation for one eye to other eye? Can this be done as a day care procedure? If not how many days it will have to get hospitalised.

Hey, doctor don't do cataract operation for both eyes at a time , The timing of surgery in the second eye certainly depends on individual circumstances. Because a period of blurry vision is normal following any eye surgery, you certainly want to be able to see adequately with the first eye before undergoing surgery on the opposite eye. It's done in OT ,Need to admit one day before and atleast one day rest is required after surgery ,consult opthalmologist
