Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question.
I can understand how this may be quite unsettling for you to still have blurry vision 5 weeks after this surgery. Unfortunately, sometimes it can take several weeks to months before the vision starts to return to its baseline level; so while it is very frustrating, I'm sure, it is not entirely unexpected.
If it has been longer than three months and the vision is still not improving, then a thorough exam should be performed to determine why this may be. A common cause for the vision not to return to its baseline level is the formation of a cataract associated with the surgery.
I hope that has been helpful. Does this help address your concerns?
