Why am I am feeling dizzy after cataract surgery?
There a couple of reasons why patients report feeling dizzy after cataract surgery
#1 – If only one eye is done, there can be significant imbalance in prescription and image quality
#2 – You may have prism or correction that is not fixed with cataract surgery. You may be frustrated until you get your new glasses!
#3 – You are used to the distortion that your old glasses induce. Post cataract surgery, you suddenly do not need distance glasses (no distortion). It can take a while for your brain to adapt.
#4 – You may need to adjust from seeing well up close to now seeing well in the distance
