How can you be sure? Probably nothing is wrong with your eyes, but the target you are looking to may impact the focus accuracy of your eyes. See  page 5 of the ICO Visual Acuity Measurement Standard, where it becomes obvious that different letters may not to have equal probability of recognition:


Please share a picture of your target, so that we can judge if it complies to ICO's standards. 

(more seriously: not a nice situation after such a promise from your operation, I hope your situation did not worsen much more after your observation)
