Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you are experiencing the blurred vision from lens implant haze caused by the initial eye inflammation as evidenced by the initial light sensitivity after the surgery. Another condition that can contribute to the blurred vision is cornea haze and/or edema considering that you had Lasik in the past - Lasik thins the cornea and can put you at risk for cornea haze. The eye pressure of 12 is consistent with the thin cornea from your past Lasik. I suggest that you continue use the eye drops as directed, especially the steroid eye drops and other drops given to you. You eye doctor could also add Muro-128 5% eye drop 4 times daily for 1 week if there is any cornea edema. If the blurred vision fails to resolve after few weeks, and the effect on your vision is significant, then your eye doctor will likely need to use the Yag laser to remove the film or inflammatory scar tissue that often develop at the back of the lens implant after cataract surgery. This is common and not harmful.
