Light sensitivity months after IOL surgery

Hi,  I had cataract surgery several months ago, which I love.  One eye for reading the other for distance.  The only thing is my eyes are quite sensitive to fluorescent lighting?

For many years the cataracts which are yellow brown blocked much of the light from getting to your retina like wearing sunglasses. So light sensitivity for several months is common especially blue/gray/green eyes. You can always wear sunglasses or tinted glasses.
