Wavy lines following cataract surgery

    Hi, hope someone can help.

    I had cataract surgery 5 weeks ago. Initally sight was ok although my
    eye was still rather inflamed after 2 weeks. The consultant said I
    should see him again in another 2 weeks and gave me some different eye
    drops, however in between these 2 appointments I went running and
    found the focus gradually deteriorating to the extent that that my
    operated eye was completely out of focus by the time I got home. I saw
    the consultant straight away and was told I had a PVD, he thoroughly
    checked the retina and said it was fine, and also confirmed this with
    a colleague.

    So I now have dimmer central vision than I had before, plus loads of
    floaters - tiny black pin points and large wispy ones. I reckon I can
    put up with this as I've always had quite a few floaters anyway. The
    main problem is jagged and wavy lines, making any 'straight' lines

    I wanted to ask whether this is a symptom of PVD, or would it be
    related to something else? Is there a chance that over the coming
    months this may reduce? Thanks.
