people sail right through cataract surgery in Mason OH without any
adverse reactions. While not usually problematic, cataract surgery
can increase your eye pressure after your procedure. Although this is
usually temporary, your eye doctor may suggest that you avoid the
following things until your eye is completely healed.
While yoga helps enhance flexibility and promotes relaxation, certain poses can bring your head down lower than the level of your heart. This can increase your eye pressure after your cataract surgery and may slow healing and raise your risk for glaucoma.
eye doctor will tell you when you can resume your yoga poses at your
first follow-up appointment. In the meantime, you can continue doing
stretching and aerobic exercises. In addition to avoiding yoga poses
until your eye has healed, avoid prolonged stooping or bending down
with your head lower than your heart.
a cup of coffee won’t have much of an effect on your eye pressure,
drinking more than a few cups a day may significantly raise it. In
addition to coffee, your eye doctor may also recommend that you also
limit your intake of tea and chocolate after your cataract surgery in
Mason OH. Herbal teas can be substituted for regular tea because they
do not contain caffeine and will have no effect on your intraocular
pressure. Once your eye is completely healed, you can resume your
normal caffeine intake.
