In brief: Different prescripti

Since you are comparing your eyes together (one that has just had cataract surgery and one that has not) the difference that you are noticing is the difference between each eyes prescription.
When you are fully recovered from your surgery, your eye surgeon will refract your eyes and provide you with the new and correct prescription. This will neutralize the image differences.

Also, an examination by your eye surgeon will reassure that you are not developing any swelling in the retina too.
