I had a cataract successfully removed from my left eye and will have my right eye done in two weeks. Since surgery, there have been four or five times when I see a light yellow film over my right eye. It fades quite quickly. Any ideas?
No way to know for sure but this may be your brain getting used to the "whiter" image in the left eye and occasionally noting the presence of the yellowing from the cataract in the less dominant right eye. This should resolve after cataract surgery.
