Suggest remedies for loss of vision after cataract surgery

My mother has undergone a cataract surgery 9 days ago. After the surgery there is no visibility from the eye operated. Doctor, who operated her, says that there is no problem and it is due to inflammation and will be alright within 1-2 weeks. We are worried, because her visibility from other eye is also not very good. She is 75 years.

I would like to know whether we should take second opinion immediately or wait for some more time as suggested by doctor.

You need to wait till the inflammation comes down which may take 4-6 weeks depending on the hardness of cataract. Continue as advised and if vision does not improve even after 4 weeks then take second opinion
