Thanks for your question

Most likely the cause of vomiting is transient increase in intraocular pressure which occurs frequently after cataract surgery. It last for few fours to few days.

Measurement of intraocular pressure 1 day post operation is very important to rule out high intraocular pressure.
Sometimes anti-glaucoma is required for few days to reduce intraocular pressure.
