Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that you had underwent catarct surgery in both the eyes. One eye had probably peribulbar hemorrhage during anesthesia before surgery because of injury to a blood vessel.
Flickering of the eye which is seen now is not related to the event which occurred two months back during surgery. Flickering of the eye is called as blepharospasm and is usually because of spasm of orbicularis oculi muscle of the eye lid which is supplied by facial nerve.
If the problem is persisting, I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist for examination and treatment accordingly.
Thank you
