Why might I have fuzzy vision after getting implanted lenses?

There are many potential causes for fuzzy vision. If it is correctable with glasses, it may be because of astigmatism or the implant in that eye may be slightly off in power. A mild need for glasses is not unusual and would not be a reason to change the implant, although this can be done as it is not scarred in, especially early on.

If the vision is not correctable with glasses, it could be caused by swelling in the cornea or retina. This usually clears with time and can be treated. It is also possible that you have mild macular degeneration. Your surgeon should be able to diagnose the reason why the vision is blurred and explain it to you.
