The recovery from cataract surgery depends on a number of factors including any pre-existing diseases that she may have had. In addition, if there were any complicating factors during the surgery, that can also affect the vision. Ten days after surgery, her vision may be blurred due to corneal edema particularly if the cataract was dense and required a lot of energy to break up or if your mother had a condition called Fuch’s Dystrophy which puts her at risk for prolonged corneal edema after surgery. It may be as simple as uncorrected refractive error — meaning she needs glasses to get her best vision. She may have glaucoma (an optic nerve problem) or a retinal issues such as diabetic retinopathy. Her physician should be able to explain why her vision is still blurred after 10 days. She may just need more time to heal. READ MORE
