Cataracts and Sandbags?

Cataracts and Sandbags?

Why are stories of sandbags exist with cataract surgery?

Many years ago, cataract surgery required a much larger incisions and had much greater risk.  Sandbags were used post surgically to keep a patient’s head immobilized for a period-of-time post-surgery.   This is a thing of the distant past but I am still asked about it!
