Tired eyes after cataract surgery -why?
71 yr old female, general good health
I had two  cataract surgeries  june 11 & 25 - IOL's implanted for 'distance' only  - vision currently 20/20 -- i will still need an Rx glasses  for astigmatism/intermediate/close correction.
       my only 'complaint' (not really complaining considering so far i am trouble-free & seeing fantastic distance after a lifetime of severe nearsighteness) is most of the day my eyes feel 'tired '(for want of a better description) ..almost a 'full-feeling'/awareness they're 'there' in my eyesockets ...no pain, no itching, no watering and i do use preservative-free artifical tears as needed.
      ... i'm weaning off Econopred on the 6/11 eye - still on Vigamax/Accular/Econopred on 6/25 eye but also weaning those drops.
         i do use the computer frequently and it 'is' an LCD screen (read your other post) ...
         Question:  is what i described 'possibly' from the lack of having my Rx-glasses in place - i realize you can't diagnose but just curious for any imput - many thanks.

this is a PS from 'poster' of this question:
         i noticed after i posted originally, i decided to wear  the post-operative dark glasses that are 'wrap-arounds while inside my home ...they felt so soothing !
         Even tho i'm inside the house a great deal, due to many large windows/doors there is an over-abundance of bright sun light streaming in constantly , so hopefully the 'bright lite' is a contributing factor?

Your problem could be from the healing process, dry eyes or not having your final glasses RX yet.

thank you very much !!!  you have relieved my mind greatly ..i am also using a lubricantby Novartis - GenTeal  in the 'mild' formula  but I  could step-up to the the 'moderate-range forumla from the same company --even tho i don't have the problems associated with that formula (significant burning/mucous dischrge/redness/itching) is the anything to be gained  in the ''it couldn't hurt category'  by using the next step up by the company ... 'moderate' dry eye formula .  Again thank you !!!
