Customer Question

I am due to have cataract surgery on my right eye in October. I normally swim twice weekly in a local heated pool. How long do I need to wait before resuming my swims? I find theswimming excellent for my arthritic knees. I am 82, and apart from the arthritis in good health.

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Shahzad and will be helping you out with your concerns.

Unfortunately, you would have to take one week off your swimming.

After one week, you can resume to swim.
