Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

Hello, Cataract surgery involves the natural crystalline lens of eye which may develop opacification caused by fibers formation due to metabolic changes called cataract. The procedure involves the insertion of artificial intraocular lens under local anesthesia and is done by two ways- Phacoemulsification and extra capsular cataract extraction. After cataract surgery it is advisable to avoid any contact of eye with water for 15 days along with usage of eye googles to avoid dust and strong light. The antibiotics are recommended for 30 days locally to allow the corneal or scleral incision to heal completely along with lubricants to keep the moisture intact. It is completely recommended not to use dristhi drops after cataract surgery as it contains extract of allium cepa and zingiber officinale which has a lekhna property and thus can cause irritation in eye and may damage the lens inserted. Honey and lemon extract has a stinging sensation when applied which may cause you to rub eyes which should be avoided post cataract surgery.

I had asked a question about using Dristhi after cataract surgery for which I have received the reply. Thank you very much.

Is it that I should not use Dristhi in future OR after how many days/month/year,after cataract surgery can I start using Dristhi.
