Based on the information you provided, it appears that you are experiencing eye fatigue on the eye with vitrectomy due to strain and ache in effort to team-up with the better eye. After the vitrectomy, and possibly with oil, there is increased astigmatism in the eye with vitrectomy, causing accommodative strain with focusing. The astigmatism and prescription will gradually change over several weeks before stabling as the eye quiets down and re-adjust. One week was too soon to get new prescription glasses. The double vision
is due to the imbalance and teaming difficulty between the two eyes.
In addition, the pressure in the eye with recent vitrectomy should be well controlled, as increase in the eye pressure can affect your focusing, cause fatigue, aches and headaches. However, it is most likely that the increased astigmatism and possibly cataract formation (if you still have your natural lens
in the eye with vitrectomy) is responsible for the strain on your eye muscles
, hence fatigue, aches and headaches. Therefore, I suggest that your eye doctor (preferably an optometrist
who may be more skilled with prism refraction
) re-check your prescription and possibly use prism to your addition to your lens to reduce the accommodative strain and eliminated the double vision.
