Ask opthalmologist: You should remember that many people who do not have cataracts, have to wear spectacles to see clearly. If a standard lens was placed in your eye, it does not correct other eye faults. You may need new spectacles. Discuss this with your ophthalmologist. Sometimes the thin layer around the lens heals with some scarring which can cause haziness, but your ophthalmologist can treat this with laser.
