Question
Since cataract surgery 6 days ago I have had double vision in that eye. What would be the reason for that?

Answer
Hi Billie,
You should of course first address your question to your surgeon rather than the internet. There are a few questions to ask, like is it double with both eyes open vs. the surgical eye only. It probably isn't a big deal, but you should have been told to call the surgeon if any problems or concerns arise so do that today or tomorrow and write back if there are still concerns.
Best,
