In brief: Likely just normal

It depends on the drops and number used.
It's possible that you are just a slow metabolizer of the respective medication/drops utilized. Consider touching base with your opthalmologist just to make sure you have a good plan of action.

In brief: Dilation p CS normal

Dilation after Cataract 1wk post op check is normal.
It should return to normal within 3-4 days if normal dilating drops were given. If you are on atropine, it will stay dilated sometimes for 5-7 days.
