Falls Between Cataract Surgery

Here’s a link to a good article about the risk of falls between cataract surgeries.

This isn’t all that surprising when you think about it.  When patients are going to have cataract surgery on both eyes, the surgeries are typically scheduled 2-3 weeks apart.  After the first eye’s surgery, the patient’s previous eyeglass Rx is no longer appropriate so they either need to go without their glasses or wear their glasses, even though they may make the vision in their operated eye worse than no glasses.  A real Catch-22.  

I always try to minimize these risks for my patients, but it’s aways an issue.
