Shadow after cataract surgery

I had cataract surgery on 3/13/13 on my left eye. I followed instructions, did my 1 day, then 1 week follow up and everything was fine. Now, for the past 3-4 days I am noticing a grayish movable haze in that eye. I blink and can see it float or reposition itself. I have no pain or tearing...nothing. Should I wait it out or call my opthamologist?


This discussion is related to Cataract surgery post-op: shadow at edge of visual field.

It is probably a floater.  However, you should have it checked.

If it is a floater will it go away? Just noticed that If I look down it floats up, if I look up it floats down. If I look left it floats right. Then if I look right it floats left. Weird. Will follow up with Dr.
