I am 44 years old & I had IOL implant surgery over a year ago, and my doctor says I'm still recovering. He wants me to check back in 6-8 months to see if the side effects can be corrected. That will be 2 years since my surgery.
In the meantime, he said I can't wear contacts or glasses and I shouldn't drive at night.. because I am still healing.
No that is not a valid explantion and a second even third opinion is warranted. The healing from an uncomplicated cataract surgery is complete in about 6-8 weeks at most. (complicated cases can take much longer).
