I had cataract surgery two-and-a-half weeks ago and had a monofocal lens fitted. The predominant color I see now is blue/lilac. My two couches which are beige now appear silvery lilac. Will this improve?
This will improve more once you have both eyes done. Your cataract acts somewhat as a blue color blocker, so once it is removed, blues are more intense—even whites can have a bit of pink or blue. Once both eyes are done and a few months pass, this will "normalize."
