What Are The Dark Glasses You Wear After Cataract Surgery?

How long should I wear the dark glasses after my cataract operation?

Wearing dark glasses after cataract surgery will help relieve the light sensitivity that you may have after the operation. Solar shield sunglasses are the most effective for reducing glare and can be worn over your current prescription glasses.

They wrap around your face and provide 100% UVA and UVB protection from all sides. They are excellent for driving, biking, golfing, or fishing and are very light (only 1.4 ounces).

They are better than regular tinted lenses because they filter the blue light spectrum and provide excellent sharpness of vision. It's fine to wear them as long as you would like to after cataract surgery, but at least for the first month.

Wearing this type of dark glasses with ultraviolet protection will help protect your eyes from the sun and can help reduce your chances of macular degeneration after cataract surgery as well.
