    No, the cataract surgery will not change the change of your eyes which is usually determined by your genetic genes. If your color of the eyes has been changed, you should take notice of your health. If you have the liver problems, your color of the eyes may become yellow. Thus, you should protect your eyes to keep the healthy color of the eyes.

    I had cataract surgery 2 months ago. I had one eye done and the other one 2 weeks later. My eyes were light green until the cataracts took over they became a dark greenish dark blueish, not a pretty green/blue either. Once the cataracts were removed and new lens put into my eyes for mono vision, (Toric in dominant left eye and reg. IOL in the right eye, { REG. IOL Lens way better than the TORIC lens, in my opinion after having one of each, plus reg. IOL lens alot cheaper by 1,000 plus dollars}, And I have noticed that my eye color have changed back to the original eye color of light green like I used to have before cataracts made them darker ugly color. Glad they changed back and got the cloudy out. I will say again, the reg. IOL lens that most insurance cover or at least little pay out of pocket is much better than the Toric which Im having problems with every day. Feels weird and off. Eye is irritated alot. But not the eye with the reg. IOL. There is no dry eye either. It's the Toric lens.

    Well, in my opinion, this kind of eye surgery cannot change your eye color. And generally speaking, you should know that a cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. And when it occurs, it can eventually block the central line of sight and impairs vision. At this moment, you should take cataract surgery to heal it, so we can say that cataract surgery is an operation to remove the clouded lens and this will be very effective. But on the other hand, there is nothing to do with your eye color, even if you have taken the surgery. And according to some experts, your eye color can change with emotion and weather. So just be careful about it.

    It is possible for cataract surgery to alter your eye color, but not at all common. I was born with a cataract and had it removed about 12 years ago and my eye color changed from a light blue to a dark green/hazel. The pupil was also effected, it no longer dilates and it is also no longer round its kind of an oblong oval. Other than slight light sensitivity the effects were purely superficial.

    I had cataract surgery about 5 yrs ago. My eyes used to be as green as a lima bean; now they're turning a deep blue with very little green left, only when light shines at a certain angle.
