I had routine cataract surgery in my left eye. Apart from the discomfort you would expect, I had a deep throbbing in my eye, made worse just by moving around. My vision wasn't good either. During my 1 week check I was told I had severe inflammation inside my eye which had raised the pressure. I was given 3 kinds of eye drops: intensive steroid drops, pupil dilating drops and antibiotic drops. It did improve thankfully but now 6 weeks on, my Optican has told me the pressure is still up in the eye and I may need to go back to the hosptal. The hospital told me on discharge all was ok but obviously not. I'm told I have been unlucky.
