@karenq, I had successful cataract surgery on both eyes recently, and din not have this experience. My opthamologist did 3 post procedure checks in the first 2 weeks. Each time he told me to call with any changes. Have you been checked by your opthamologist?

I know of some patients who go directly from optometrist to an eye clinic where they only see an ophthalmologist on the day of surgery. If this is your situation, please contact an opthamologist today. Or at the very least go to see your primary doctor who can decide of you need to be seen, then he/she can get you in right away if necessary.

Karen, let me know what you find out.
