Pink Vision After Cataract Surgery - How Long Does It Last For?

I had cataract surgery 2 days ago and I'm still seeing things with a pink hue or tinge to them. Is this normal? How long will it take for things to clear up and get back to normal?

Seeing pink colors after cataract surgery is not unusual and typically is not something that is a cause for concern.

When your surgeron performed your cataract operation, a very bright microscope light was used. This temporally "stuns" the light sensitive cells inside the eye and can result in patients seeing things with a pink or reddish hue after the surgery.

Seeing these colors after cataract surgery is normal and typically clears up after several days or weeks.

You should ask your eye doctor if you are concerned about the pink vision that you are having after cataract surgery.
