Objects viewed with one eye appear larger than the other

Hi, I had a buckle operation to fix a detached retina in my left eye. The objects when viewed with my left eye (non-corrected) appear slightly larger than the objects in my right eye (non-corrected).

Why is this?

It can be due to the refractive change caused by the buckle and some increase in macular thickness.

Did you ever find out what the cause is?

After straight forward cataract surgery I have the same issue.
