Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you are having vision problems now after having cataract surgery. Coughing can increase pressure in both the abdomen and in your eyes. The pressure from coughing may have caused a vision change. May I suggest you contact your Ophthalmologist for re-evaluation and schedule an appointment in the very near future.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
