In brief: Possible.

Unfortunately, retinal detachment occurs not uncommonly after cataract surgery in about one to two cases per hundred cataract surgeries.
Halos can be a function of the intraocular lens that is placed in the eye at the time of cataract surgery. They can be a function of uncorrected or over corrected refractive error. Also, the condition of the retina is obviously a factor.
