  1. May be patient had pre existing dioplopia but couldn’t not notice due to cataract.After cataract surgery she now getting the problem. Pre operative ocular motility wasn’t tested!!

    • Her examination findings would suggest that this has been a life-long problem, not directly related to the cataract surgery.
