    At first, after the cataract surgery, the ghosting vision is quite normal because there is a recovery period certainly. The retina is slowly in atrophy as well as the eye pressure is unstable at the same time. If the situation is not serious, it means that you just need a good rest both for the eyes and body. Meanwhile, it is recommended that you should not eat the spicy food which may stimulate your eye nerves and make the situation become heavier. However, if the symptom is severe and is going to be worse, you'd better see a doctor and have a medical check-up to confirm that whether there are some other reasons to give rise to this situation.

    Well, for your situation, I have to say that your eyes may suffer from eye infection after the cataract surgery. First, you should know that cataract surgery is an operation to remove the clouded lens. But after the surgery, you need to be careful about your eyes in the first several weeks after eye surgery, or it will just lead to an infection or inflammation that irritates the eyes. Finally, it will just cause ghosting in your eyes. Of course, it will slow down the recovery process too. To make sure the cataract surgery effective, just avoid your eyes being infected by some bacteria.
