In brief: Cloudy after CS

Blurry vision, discomfort, pressure sensations around eye after surgery are common.
Can be due to resolving inflammation, corneal swelling/edema, drying out of tear film layer, pressure fluctuations in eye. These symptoms should resolve. Muro 128 drops & ointment help if due to corneal swelling: OTC; use post op drops (steroid & antibiotic); cold ice packs; ask MD if have edema: Muro helps.

In brief: Glasses

Cataract surgery should clear the cloudiness.
If you still have cloudy vision after cataract surgery then you either need glasses or something else is going on. See your eye doc. Could be a secondary membrane, macular problems, or inflammation.
