There are a number of causes of black spots. The two most common  1. vitreous floaters, black spots that move when the eye moves and are present most of the time  2. negative dysphotopsia that are due to the IOL, especially multifocal IOLs. Use the archives and search feature to read more about both.

There are other causes. If they are getting worse ask for a second opinion
