Is the lens felt in the eye after cataract surgery? Surgeon says everything is Ok. I had surgery 10-06. Could I be feeling the new lens and it takes time to get adjusted? No pain.

In brief: No

You cannot feel the artificial lens itself.
You may be feeling inflammation, pressure, the incision or something else, most of which resolve with time and treatment, bit it will not be the kens. You make get want to ask your surgeon about this.

In brief: Intraocular implant

An implant is placed in the eye after cataract surgery to focus light properly on the retina.
Discomfort after surgery is common. What lens was placed? There are few reports of a patient feeling an implant : so this is rare. Likely normal healing process.
