Eye deformation after tripod fracture surgery

User Profile
Good Afternoon,

I am Jesse W. I was in a car accident that left me with a tetrapod fracture of the left side of my face. I had surgery performed by an oralmaxillo surgeon to raise the cheekbone and stabilize the fractures. The surgery went well but my left eye (same side plates were placed) is smaller and deformed compared to the right. I also have cloudy vision and an inflamed sclera. Will these things subside? I am studying to be a surgeon and really need my vision. Overall the experience has left me with severe anxiety and an inability to fully focus on other things besides my face. I am two weeks post-op.
