My mother had cataract surgery on her left eye on 21st Jan 2017.

Phaco procedure. We had 3 follow ups, first one a day after surgery, other

Two were, a week n 2 weeks later. She did complain for a lil shadow at the

Edge of the eye, but kind negligible, so she never mentioned it to doc. But

The pain, and the swelling were there, doc discarded it by saying it might be

Because of cold or sinus. But on 14th March 2017, after more than a month,

my mum started seeing shadow moving, floaters, flashes, or flickering lights,

The doc said, everything is fine, n it will reduce with time, or you will get used

To ignore it. I am confused, n i am afraid for my mum. Can anyone tell me

What we should do.
