• Why do my reading glasses improve blurry reading and distance vision after cataract surgery?


    It has been two weeks since I had cataract surgery on my left eye. I still have blurred vision. However, if I put on reading glasses of power 1.5, I can see perfect for both reading and distance. Why?


    It is not unusual for vision to fluctuate after cataract surgery. It is also possible to have some degree of farsightedness or nearsightedness and/or astigmatism after cataract surgery. This will also fluctuate and you may not have a final stable refraction (prescription) until after four weeks or more.
