    Hello Sir!
    My father has recently undergone a cataract surgery. He is 57 yrs old
    and has no other complaints except a mild Blood pressure.
    Its been around 12 days after surgery and he still feels discomfort in
    his eye. he finds his eye muscles getting tired easily and a slight
    pain and fatigue.
    More over he does not see white as white, instead he finds if bright
    bluish white with a lot of glare.
    How long will these two problems persist? when will he be able to see
    what is the probable reason for the bluish shade he sees?
    Looking forward for you kind guidance in the above matter.
    Please do reply on the above mail id.
    Thanking you
    With regards

    Shouldn't your father be asking his surgeon these questions?

    Better still, go with your father and both ask these questions. I find
    that a dual interface with the medical profession works better.

    I would suspect replacing a yellowed natural lens with a clear IOL would
    produce some color sensation differences.

    Good luck.
