Had laser treatment on my both eyes and now I have 20/20 vision again

Thanks to Alan and Sandy who referred me to their eye doctor Phillip McGeorge I can see everything again.
Unfortunately I can see dirty everyone in my house and I am driving everyone nuts with my cleaning spree.
Here is the description of the procedure in case you have blurry eye sight after lens implant.

Laser posterior capsulotomy

Laser posterior capsulotomy, or YAG laser capsulotomy, is a noninvasive procedure performed on the eye to remove the opacification (cloudiness) that develops on the posterior capsule of the lens of the eye after extraction of a cataract. This differs from the anterior capsulotomy that the surgeon makes during cataract extraction to remove a cataract and implant an intraocular lens (IOL). Laser posterior capsulotomy is performed with Nd:YAG laser, which uses a wavelength to disrupt the opacification on the posterior lens capsule. The energy emitted from the laser forms a hole in the lens capsule, removing a central area of the opacification. This posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is also referred to as a secondary cataract.
