I just had cataract surgery today with the tiny incision and a regular IOL. I was sent home with no patch or bandage over that eye, though I do have one to use when I'm sleeping. I took a nap earlier and just left it on, as I feel better with it on.

My vision in that eye is very cloudy, like I'm trying to look through a milk carton. My eye is also still dilated, even though my surgery was at 1 p.m. this afternoon (it's now almost 11 p.m.) Is this normal? Will it get better tomorrow?
