I remember 10-15 years back, right after cataract surgery, patients were told to wear big dark sunglasses, almost like a welders goggles for several days. Then came the clear-lens sunglasses, and most would think what an improvement over those dark (somewhat ugly) sunglasses. These seem to be a thing of the past. Now a days, you are given an eye shield/patch, that's held by tape, at least in the United States. In countries like India, you are still given those clear sunglasses. And many doctors in the US don't even recommend the eye shield. It's a debate in the medical community, where some feel, it is not necessary to wear throughout the day, just in the night. Others feel, its 'safer' to have them wear it throughout the week post-surgery.
I would personally feel more comfortable with a pair of wrap-around sunglasses to protect my eyes from sun, dirt/dust/debris, harsh wind, water.
What does the community over here feel? If you have used sunglasses right after cataract surgery, which brand would you recommend?
