Does Color Vision Noticeably Change After Undergoing Surgery For Cataracts
No, your vision generally doesn't deteriorate after cataract surgery unless other problems arise, such as macular degeneration or glaucoma: In cataract surgery, the eye doctor (ophthalmologist) removes the clouded lens from your eye and replaces it with a clear, artificial lens. This lens is very durable and should last for the rest of your life. Sometimes the capsule that holds the artificial lens becomes cloudy after cataract surgery. This can affect your vision. An eye doctor can use a laser to make the lens capsule clear again. Most people use glasses, at least some of the time, after cataract surgery. After your eyes have healed from surgery, your doctor may recommend prescription eyeglasses. ...Read more
After dilation, eyes very blurred, but can see okay with glasses, when not dilated. Indicates cataract surgery? Is cataracts reversible?

The surgery is brief and almost painless. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Cataract: I'll have an aspheric monocular IOL placed for near viewing. Will my vision change for the better over weeks or does it happen right away?

Perhaps: Corneal abrasion at the time of cataract surgery can happen, but it is very rare. Certain conditions can increase the incidence (dry eyes, blepharitis, even previous lasik). The retinal swelling also is somewhat rare to the level you are describing, but it too still happens. Conditions like diabetes, uveitis history, and pre-existing wrinkling of the retina (epiretinal membrane) increase risk. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Yes: I see this most commonly in keratoconus grafts where initial swelling causes graft flattening. As the swelling goes down the graft steepens and becomes more myopic. Of course any transplant can have a change in refractive error and astigmatism as it heals. I would not worry about rejection this early but if there is any pain or increase in redness or light sensitivity i would see your surgeon now. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
