Re: how long after cataract surgery will pupil stay dilated?
It's been 2¬Ĺ years since I had my surgery, so I don't remember that much about the drops. But I do recall that it's necessary to have the pupil dilated with the crystalens, I think because it's attached to the iris, and they don't want it being moved around by an opening and closing iris while it's newly attached. Does that make sense?
So your vision will be blurrier while you're using the dilation drops than it will be after you stop using them.
