What Is The Best Position To Sleep After Cataract Surgery

Following cataract surgery, it is recommended to sleep on your back with your head slightly elevated. This position helps to reduce swelling and promote healing. It is important to avoid sleeping on the side or stomach for at least the first few days after surgery to prevent any accidental pressure on the operated eye. It is always best to follow the specific instructions provided by your ophthalmologist or surgeon as they may have individualized recommendations based on your specific case.
