In brief: Blurry cataract

See your surgeon.
It could be postoperative swelling in the back of the eye, cells growing over the capsular membrane behind your new lens, glasses that are wrong, or other unrelated things like dry eyes, etc.

In brief: See surgeon

The vision usually starts out blurry and takes 1-2 weeks of daily improvement to clear. If there is coexisting eye problems or a complication of surgery, this can take longer. There is often also a need for glasses after surgery, and before obtaining glasses some people have blurry vision.
If none of these scenarios describe your situation, follow up with your surgeon.
