I’m 2 weeks post op and today , looking at me, my daughter asked, Which eye did you get done? She could see movement in the pupil of that eye. When I moved my eye there was a bobble inside. I just saw the dr today before this for a post op appt. 

Has anyone else noticed this?

    I thought this might be what she saw but it said it disappears within 24 hours. 

    "...introducing a small air bubble in the anterior chamber, at the end of sutureless cataract surgery, can prevent inflow of ocular surface fluid."

    Were you facing a light when she saw it in your eye? When light shines in my eyes it looks like something jiggling in them but in reality it is the light reflecting off my lenses. Sometimes people stare at me like I'm an alien.

      I don’t think so. We were in a library. 

      Are you saying the light reflects differently off the IOL than a natural lens?

      What you are describing is noticeable on my MIL who has monofocals but not my husband and sister- in- law with multifocals.

    I guess find out if you have a bubble or a bobble. My iris "jiggles" slightly when I'm doing something like reading close text. This tends to happen the most when I first wake up. If I look in a mirror with lighting aimed towards my eye and get it "right" I will see the IOL reflect light and it looks to be moving after my eye eye stops. There are some videos online of some people whose IOL really seem to move and I first though I had that going on but as I've watched it in the mirror more closely it's more like a twitch in the entire iris so I think that the IOL is probably fine.

    If this IS what you have it should bother you less over time. If it's a bubble, then ignore this post.

      Must be some sort of reflection.  Can’t see how IOL could possibly move.  After 6 weeks it adheres to the tissue.   if it was moving wouldn’t there be corresponding visual issues?
