Many reasons: It depends on several things. What was the reason for the transplant; is the cornea healing correctly, is the cornea rejecting, or is the angle of the new cornea causing astigmatism that needs to be further corrected with glasses or contacts. It sometimes takes months to completely heal. You need to discuss this with the eye doctor that did the transplant.

Is it normal for eye vision to worsen a few weeks after corneal transplant surgery?

Yes: Depending on the type of transplant - full thickness or endothelial graft the tissues have to heal and stabilize. Please be patient with corneal grafting results - it takes a long time.
