Light sensitivity: You question is going to be answered best by the surgeon (s) who did your surgery, as he knows you best. Try and ask the s your question.

Usually yes: Some patients can be more sensitive to bright lights after cataract surgery until their eyes are healed and all the inflammation has resolved. You should definitely be discussing this with your surgeon.
