Welcome to Just Answer:

It general, the smaller image is caused by the difference in the refractive medium density due to the artificial replacing fluid in the operated eye. The liquid in the operated has a different density from the natural vitreous in the eye. Optimal refraction with prescription glasses or contacts can be used to significantly reduce the imbalance of the image sizes in the two eyes. I suggest that you ask your retinal eye doctor to refer you to a good refractive correction eye doctor for a closer evaluation and attempt at the correction of the problem.
