I have had two previous eye muscle surgeries for lazy eye which were successful. I recently had cataract surgery. Ever since the surgery, I have trouble focusing and my eyes are no longer straightened. Is this a common outcome of cataract surgery?
This type of symptom cannot be analyzed by email. You need to consult with your ophthalmologist. It is not a common outcome of cataract surgery in general, but patients with pre-existing eye muscle alignment problems may notice new symptoms when a previously poor seeing eye suddenly gains back vision.
