Light sensitive eyes after having cataracts removed

I had cataracts removed some 5 years ago. My eyes are extremely light sensitive which makes driving into the sunlight difficult.t

Hi there,

Light sensitivity after cataract surgery is common. It should improve with time. Generally, people find driving in sunlight challenging and for that reason sunglasses are advised.

Best wishes!
