Hi. My name is***** and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
First of all, there is nothing that your mother did to make the lens slip. She has nothing to worry about in this regard.
If the "slipped" lens is causing a lot of visual difficulties for her, your mother can discuss with her surgeon having lens placed back in the correct position.
Depending on what caused the lens to slip, this may be a fairly easy thing for the surgeon to do, or it might require fairly complex surgical manipulation.
In any event, it should be possible to restore the lens to its correct position...
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?

Hi Dr. Rick,
I am grateful for your quick answer.
Did you notice my follow up comment?
Sure, I commented that my Mom saw a top cataract surgeon from NY and she felt he was a little dismissive about the less than desired results. He proposed a follow up in 7 weeks and she asked to see him in 3 - 4 so she could maybe achieve better results from the surgery. She is disappointed and a little frustrated. Could it be that due to her getting lucentis for 7 years she can't expect good results from cataract surgery?
