I think you got steroid induced cataract because of prolonged use of steroid drop.After cataract surgery there is chance of after cataract that is white membrane is formed at back of lens which can be cut by laser which is a OPD Procedure ,it hardly takes 5-10 min.Get your eyes checked by ophthalmologist as soon as possible.

Hi welcome to healthcaremagic
the first time you got cataract, the cause may be due to steroids intake for long time , this can lead to Steroid Induced cataract..
The loss of eye sight after the cataract surgery is called as After cataract... the opacification of the posterior wall of bag of lens is called as After Cataract.. it it caused due to the fibrous growth in the posterior wall.. at present what you can do is again you must consult an ophthalmologist and if necessary you can under go surgery...
