After cataract surgery I have what looks like a windshield

Customer Question

After cataract surgery I have what looks like a windshield wiper going across my eyes and I am extremely sensitive to light. It seems as there is a film on my eyes. It has been four weeks since the first eye and two weeks for the last one. Is this normal?
