Is inconsistent vision post cataract surgey normal?

Posted , 8 users are following.

I'm three months post cataract surgery and things are pretty good. I'm a bit myopic, but that I can deal with. My bigger issue is that my vision is not consistent and sometimes during the day it's a lot worse than other times. This mostly impacts my distance vision, but on rare occasions it also impacts my near vision. Drops don't help things at all. The one constant is if I am watching TV and dose off for a little bit, after I wake up my vision is always at it's best. So my layman diagnosis is that my eyes are just getting tired, which wouldn't surprise me since I stare at screens most of the day. However, I'm wondering if this is normal or if there could be something else going on here. If it is normal, would it likely improve?

    I've now noticed that it seems to get worse the more I need to focus my eyes on different subjects. At first I thought it was bc the lens may be moving around, but could that really be the case with both lenses? It's also possible that it's taking me longer to heal since I'm a type 2 diabetic.
