Hi Everyone,

Just had cataract surgery to remove 1 of 2 db induced cataracts last Wednesday. I'm 5 days out from surgery and the eye is still blurry. I'm curious, based on the forum's experience, how long did it take your vision to return to normal?

I had a standard (distance focused) IOL, not multi-focal and I'm not sure where I should be at this point. My doc says everything looks good, I just expected to be further along at this point. Would my db be slowing my recovery time?

Thanks Shanny - Yeah, my BGs are pretty stable ranging between the mid 80's (86-88) and mid-90's (95/96) depending on how good or bad I've eaten. I actually ate lasagna last week and my 2-hr post-meal number were 86. I guess I just expected better vision at 5 days. Eye #2 is/was not nearly as bad off as eye #1, so I'll probably hold off until later this year.
