I am 54 and was a contact lens for distance and glasses for reading wearer with early cataracts.  I have opted for Zeiss trifocals toric lens replacement.  The first eye (left) was done 12 days ago and I could see fine through it at the follow-up assessment 4 days ago.  I am now 4 days post-op on the second (dominant) eye.  The pupil went down two days ago, but my vision through it is very blurry.  I am due at follow-up in 3 days.  I am using all eye drops prescribed as indicated.  

What at is the cause of the blurryness in the second eye please?

    , surgeonHope it clears. My "dominant" eye is also blurred and i cannot see clearly. Done 3 weeks ago. Made a fuss at post -op appointment   and now have an appointment to see consultant again.

    Possibly with a need to take out lens and replace it. Went in with a "good" eye and now cannot see clearly. It is a pain and not acceptable.

      In addition to trifocal lenses being fitted, I also had astigmatism correction at the same time (limbal relaxation incisions in the cornea).  It is that which has not worked so well in my right eye which will be addressed at my six week follow-up with a further procedure.

    My 2nd eye did not improve. Could not see clearly after surgery. Now at 6 weeks and having a lens change next week.Saw consultant today. Seems that lens may have moved forward causing me to be short-sighted in my long-sighted eye.Surgeon will decide when he operates. If that doesnot work will be given laser on NHS or a "piggy-back"- so more surgery.
