Question: I had cataract surgery and a lens implant about 2 weeks ago and my vision is blurry and has not cleared. It is like the cataract is still in my eye. The cataract surgeon doesn't seem to be concerned. What should I do and why did this happen?
Answer: It is impossible to tell you why your visual recovery from Cataract Surgery is not quicker as you do not know whether there may have been some complication during Cataract removal or what the overall health of your eye is, including the Cornea and the Retina. However, what we can tell you is that you should carefully follow the instructions given by your Cataract Surgeon. Some blurry vision 2 weeks after Cataract Surgery is possible is there is Corneal swelling, inflammation, certain reactions of the Retina and other situations that can sometimes occur after Cataract Surgery. If you are uncomfortable with the information your Cataract Surgeon is sharing, then it is never inappropriate to find the best Cataract Surgeons near your home and schedule an appointment for a second opinion.
