Large pupil- pytergium surgery

I had pytergium surgery 8 weeks ago. Was on steroid drops and had high pressure so I was put on to combigan drops. Noticed blurred long distance vision and my pupil appears larger than the other. It does go normal in normal light but in unnatural light I can see a distinct difference. Stopped both drops (steroid 2 weeks ago) and combigan 3 days ago. Dr said wait two weeks for pupil to return to size. I am really worried. Does this sound right?

Blurred vision may occur after pterygium surgery, and usually resolves as the eye heals.  It is possible that the large pupil may have resulted from the Alphagan ingredient in Combigan, which is a combination drop of Timoptic and Alphagan.  I do suspect that the pupil size will return to normal now that you are off the drop.
