Cataract Surgery Recovery and High Altitude

Question: Is traveling to higher altitudes advisable during Cataract Surgery recovery?

Answer: Cataract Surgery recovery from modern Cataract Surgery including "no needle, no patch, no stitch" surgery procedures is pretty patient friendly. If you are in good health and have had no other eye surgery concurrent with your Cataract operation-such as Retinal Detachment surgery-then assuming that your Cataract Surgeon has no restrictions, traveling to high altitudes should not pose any real problems or risk.
