Blinking eye post surgery

One year back. My mother got operated for cataract in her left eye. Post surgery her left eye became small compared to right eye and it is blinking continuously.. One of my relative who got operated said it will be there for some days.. but its almost a year.. my mother's eye is still blinking more than the normal.. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you

Hi..., Cataract surgery successfully restores vision in an overwhelming majority of cases. Cataract surgery involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens. The artificial lens, called an intraocular lens, is positioned in the same place as your natural lens, and it remains a permanent part of your eye... After the procedure, you'll have some discomfort for a few months..Frequent blinking of eyes could be due to dryness of the eyes...Consult Ophthalmologist for artificial tear drops...
