Consultation time: Time to contact your eye surgeon again. Another eye muscle surgery is likely the only thing that will help but the issue is best assessed by someone trained in the procedure.

Possibly: The final position of the eyes depends upon how it heals despite the efforts of the strabismus surgeon. I am guessing that yours eye were crossed out and now there seems to be an over correction. Check with the surgeon who did your eyes and see if it can be reversed somewhat.
