I am very sorry for your awful situation.  I would want to know if the central retinal artery occlusion was present before the cataract surgery and if not, did the surgery have something to do with it.  In general the prognosis for this problem is rather grim.  I'm very concerned and wondering if maybe if it was present before surgery.  If it is brand new right after surgery, that would be a very rare event.
