Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.

I reviewed your history.

It seems from the history that you are having blocked vision in left eye after cataract surgery.

The common causes that needs to be ruled out are
Complications following cataract surgery like after cataract, cystoid macular edema.

Hence I advice you to consult ophthalmologist and take second opinion before deciding on the further course of treatment.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you

Brief Answer:
This requires evaluation by eye doctor.

Detailed Answer:
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.

Thank you
