My mom had cataract surgery and has been feeling pressure in forehead and under eyes. Eye pressure was checked and fine. Have you ever heard of this?

In brief: After Cataract surg

It is not uncommon to have general discomfort or pressure sensations around eye after cataract surgery.
This can be due to resolving inflammation, corneal swelling, drying out of tear film layer, pressure fluctuations in eye. These symptoms should resolve. If they do not, ask your eyeMD to recheck inside eye & check to be sure there is any sinusitis (usually unrelated to initial surgery).
