Do I have to cover the eye while taking a shower after cataract surgery?

Well, it depends how long ago the cataract surgery was.

It is stated that you can take a shower as you normally do after the procedure. You can wash your face immediately after the surgery, but drying it is the issue. When drying off, you should try and tap around the eye and make sure not apply any force to the area. You should not rub the eye if soaps get in the eye by accident as it is not advisable. Instead, you should close your eyes until the stinging stops.
