I got my eye operated for cataract on 25th may 2017. But after 1 week my eye started blinking internally just like a flickering light. Please suggest me a solution.

It is very common after any surgery and is due to some operative injury. Will go away on it's own. Wait for 6 mths.

Dear Lybrate user frequent blinking after cataract surgery may be due to test film instablity or may be due to other causes. Tear film instablity induced dry eye may be cured by artificial tear drop. For other causes you may consult to your eye surgeon. They will treat accordingly.

It may due dryness which usually occurs due to use of corticosteroid eye drops postoperatively ,it will disappear naturally when you stop using eye drops when you recover fully .
