Question: How long after cataract surgery can one go to a mud bath and mineral spring Jacuzzi spa. I will be traveling to Napa Valley one week after surgery and wonder if I could enjoy this experience.
Answer: It is always best to ask your cataract surgeon as there may or may not be special considerations based on the type of cataract surgery, how the procedure was performed and tolerated-however, conservatively and safely--a 2 week delay after cataract surgery should be sufficient.
