Eyepatch – Do you wear an eyepatch after cataract surgery?

After your cataract surgery, we’ll place a transparent eye shield over your eye to protect it from dust and other particulates that could cause irritation or infection. 

Although you can wear an eyepatch after cataract surgery if you wish to do so, an eye shield has the added benefit of allowing you to see out of the eye that has been operated on. 

You’ll need to wear your eye shield on the day of your cataract surgery and keep it on overnight, but you can remove and dispose of it the morning after your surgery.
