After cataract surgery, the first one to two weeks are the most labor-intensive. The cat must be kept quiet and calm. Usually an Elizabethan collar is used to keep the cat from rubbing the eye or grooming the area around the eye.

Follow all instructions your veterinarian gives you for medications. Several topical (drops) and oral medications may be used after surgery, such as: anti-inflammatory drops (prednisone/prednisolone, dexamethasone); dilating drops (tropicamide, atropine); antibiotic ophthalmic drops; oral anti-inflammatory drugs (prednisone, baby aspirin or ketoprofen); and oral antibiotics (amoxicillin, cephalexin).
