Floaters after Cataract surgery

One year ago I had Cataract surgery on my right eye. Everything went well.

Three weeks later I had Cataract surgery on my left eye. Everything went well for 5 days, then I saw Floaters, small specs. After three more days, the specs went away. I awaken two days later with a large cobweb Floater in the left eye, which is still there.

On 7/18/09 I now have acquired a large cobweb Floater in the Right eye. Now I have obstruction of vision in both eyes. Before surgery I never experienced floaters. I am 72 years of age.

There was never anything discussed about Floaters before surgery.

Can the fluid be removed without danger to my eyesight?

BY age 50 half of the people have floaters and by age 75 its 75% have floaters. Often cataract obscure the floaters and they are immediately visible after the cataract is removed.

It's likely that the floaters are related more to you age than any problem from the cataract surgery.

No there is no way to remove the floaters without a lot of major risks.
