Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

You should check the intraocular pressure in the right eye which sometimes can get high after cataract surgery.

Also dry eyes in diabetic patients who had cataract surgery is very common and it is manifested as excessive tearing and foreign body and burning sensation.
