Brief Answer:
This requires evaluation by eye doctor.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.

Any thing affecting the vision cannot be ignored and it requires proper evaluation and treatment. This will prevent further decrease of vision.

You need to undergo common tests like measurement of visual acuity, refraction testing, anterior segment evaluation by slit lamp and indirect ophthalmoscopy to find out the underlying cause and treatment accordingly.


Hence I advice you to consult your eye doctor for evaluation to rule out common complications which usually occur following cataract surgery and other causes for symptoms of blocked vision.

Hope this information is helpful to you.
