    I had cataract surgery in my right eye 1 week ago and now the right side of
    my head sometimes feel heavy. According to my surgeon, the surgery went well
    and everything's looking good. Since my IOP is normal (16), he thinks that
    the slight heaviness comes from my brain still not being accustomed to my
    clear vision. Granted, I had cataract in that eye for more than 10 years and
    I know it takes time to fully recover. I just want to know if my symptom is
    unusual.

  2. I think he/she is copping out. Clear vision doesn't cause heaviness on
    one side of the head. If it persists, get a 2nd opinion.

    Then, what may cause heaviness on the right side of the head? It feels heavy
    mostly when I focus on something (e.g., reading).
