Thanks for the information.
In post operative cases, the most common complications which can cause profound decrease in vision are endophthalmitis (infection in the eye), glaucoma (sudden ride in pressure of the eye), uveitis (inflammation of the eye).
All the above complications are serious and vision threatening. You would need to see your Ophthalmologist immediately. If the cause is endophthalmitis, then every minute counts. You might need injections in the eye or surgery depending on the diagnosis.
