cloudy vision after cataract surgery

After right cataract surgery with a monovision lens replacement, (on May 6, 2021), when I look straight
ahead my vision is cloudy, like looking through wax paper. I can look to the left or right with my
left eye closed, and when I look straight ahead, momentarily my vision is clear. But overall my straight ahead vision is cloudy.
I have gone to 2 ophthalmologists, besides the one who did the surgery. They could not tell me why I have
this cloudy vision in my right eye. I do not see spots, so I'm assuming it's not floaters. I have floaters
in my left eye, and with this condition in my right eye, it gives me a sense of imbalance.
The doctors say it is not a capsule problem, and the IOL is seated properly. So what can be causing my
cloudy vision?

The problem could be the reading part of the eye (macula). I suggest you see a retina/vitreous/macula specialist and have a macular OCT and fluorescein angiogram.
