I had cataract surgery in both my eyes last year. I should say that the surgery was a success with respect to eyesight. However, I have had general discomfort with my eyes. They tend to become tired (I work on the computer virtually all day long). I have seen two ophthalmologists; one who performed the surgery and he tried numerous eye drops but the condition persists. I tried a second opinion and the doctor could not see anything wrong from all the examination he could. He felt that perhaps the "brain" is taking some extra time adjusting to the new lens in my eye.
I felt that there was something to that explanation although it is not clear what he really meant in an objective sense. Could it be that there is some immune response issue which could eventually go away?
