Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you still have have unresolved eye inflammation, and possibly the beginning of formation of film tissue at the back of your lens implant. Another possibility is that you still have some uncorrected astigmatism after the surgery. It would be necessary to follow-up with your eye doctor to re-check your refraction, check for any unresolved inflammation, and possible adjust or re-start you on anti-inflammatory drops. Also important, I suggest that your eye doctor dilate your eye(s) and exclude any swelling at the back of the eye (cystoid macular edema), in addition to checking your eye pressure.
