    It is unusual to still have inflammation in the eye requiring drops over a month after cataract surgery, but it is not unheard of, so continuing the drops is appropriate. If the vision is improving, it may just be a matter of time. If the vision in not improving, ask for a detailed explanation of why, and get a second opinion if you are not satisfied.
