Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

That is correct.....it may take a few days after surgery for things to improve.

Dr. Rick :

And, yes, it is OK to cry. This will not hurt anything at all.

Dr. Rick :

Does this answer your question to your satisfaction?

he probably means that the pupil is still dilated toward 3:00; this should be OK

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 1 year ago.
Well, the risk is lower but you are still healing....

Glad to hear that things are going so well and you are already on your way back to work.

Have a great week :-)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
One More thing. Doc delayed my ored taper a week because he said I was healing faster than the typical cataract patient and he wanted to avoid a return of redness Nd need to restart the pred in a month. Ill be on ored drops still 4 x day for a week then 3 turn 2 etc. what did he mean by healing too quickly? Thank you
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 1 year ago.
You know, that is a very good question. And. To tell the truth, there are a number of reasons he could be saying this, so I'm not sure.

It does sound, however, like you are doing well. It would probably be best to ask your surgeon what he means by that statement.....
