Cataract surgery is a common procedure that can help restore vision and improve quality of life. However, it is normal to experience blurred vision in the days immediately following the procedure. The length of time it takes for your vision to clear up depends on a variety of factors, such as the type of cataract surgery, your age, general health, and any pre-existing eye conditions. While some patients may have clear vision just a few hours after surgery, most people will need to wait while their eyes adjust to the new intraocular lens implant.
In rare cases, complications or pre-existing eye problems can cause permanent cloudiness of vision.
