Brief Answer:
fixation and projection problem.

Detailed Answer:
Present eye has a different fixation point. Accordingly eye is projected that way you have a squint. Date of your operation if recent then it was a cosmetic correction. In such surgery no improvement of vision will be there. Another cover test and refraction should be done.

Your binocularity should be tested. Your brain will accept the good vision and inferior vision is suppressed. You may not be knowing this. If it is not done then there will be diplopia(double vision).

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help.
