In brief: Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery has advanced tremendously in the last few decades.
Partial vision loss after surgery can be due to a long list: swollen macula (CME), inflammation, vein/artery occlusion, optic nerve damage, surgical complications, etc. An eyeMD can do tests to see what is the cause. Best of luck.
