How is the vision in that eye now?
I am absolutely sure that the cataract surgery has nothing to do with a black eye. I do agree that it is a bit strange for a black eye to have occured without any head or eye injury.
His vision seems to be OK but the watering is a little bit more
But I would want to know if there is any pain/redness in that eye?
The eye itself is not painful but the area around it especially near the nose is, there doesn't seem to be any redness IN the eye
Ok. Spontaneous black eye can sometimes occur if a person is on blood thinning medicines such as aspirin.
He does take a baby aspirin every day
Well in that it does explain the occurance of a spontaneous black eye in the absence of any injury or trauma. it is self healing and would not require any specific medication. But he needs to continue with the prescribed post-op eye medicines.
