Cloudy Vision after Cataract Surgery

Question: Is cloudy vision normal 10 hours after cataract surgery?

Answer: Some degree of short term blurry vision or cloudy is possible due to varying degrees of swelling or corneal edema, perhaps minor inflammation and swelling elsewhere in the eye and just the general recovery of the delicate tissue. Cloudiness or blurriness that persists without improvement for more than a few days does warrant discussion with your cataract surgeon.
