Hello, Welcome to Just Answer
If the cataract surgery has been uneventful with no intraoperative compkications then 2 post op visits are adequate. The first would be after a week of surgery and the second after4 weeks. The second visit is for refraction and spectacle correction if required. More frequent visits are required if there are intraoperative complications or any post operative complication is noted at the first visit.
However patients can voluntarily follow up with the doctor anytime if they notice any sudden onset of pain, blurring of vision, redness with watering or discharge.

i am diabetic.I have an annual eye monitoring/screening for retinopathy. There is no sign of such condition. Will catarract extraction mask any detection of the condition? My blood sugar is reasonably controlled but sometimes fluctuates during times of stress for example.
what other monitoring/screening test that may be more effective will you advise please?
My father has glucoma and my sister has recently been diagnosed with it as well. She is having to apply eye drops over the course of the day and night. It's a bit of a problem for her especially at work. she said her eyes are a bit blurry after application of the drops and she needs to close and rest them.
I have had a test done. I was told that the pressure in one eye is high but in the the normal range. I was asked to come in a years time for annual check up.
Please what else can my sister do to reduce the frequency of application especially during working period?
What can I do to ensure I do not have glucoma? Should I be requesting for a treatment of some sort to make sure that I do not development glucoma? Should I be treating the eye with elevated pressure now? if so, what treatment should I be having?
