Cataract in Left Eye / PRK in right

Hello Doctors,

I have been a contact wearing person since 5th grade (3.75 prescription).  I just turned 41 and have been looking into getting lasik done.  During my check up I uncovered a cataract in my left eye.  The doctor subscribed I do PRK in my right eye and then have Cataract surgery in my left eye (placing a lense to get 20/20),  6 weeks ago I had the PRK done (right eye) and 12 days ago (left eye) I had cataract surgery.

I used to be able to read without my contact in but now I can't read or see a computer screen without reading glasses.  I have been very off balance as well.  My eyes are healing well and are both 20/20 now but I am very off balance. I was wondering if the off balanceness will go away as my eyes heal or if there could be something else going on.  Any insight would be appreciated.  Thank you!!
