5 years after cataract surgery. Shld I do something? Anything to worry abt? It's been 2 yrs since my last checkup. Not much changes with vision.

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.See 4 more doctor answers
