Thank you for your question. Perhaps a suture was left in and finally broke/dissolved.  Have the eye examined by your doctor and they can determine what occurred. I hope this helps.

It is always best to see you surgeon as soon as possible if you have concerns such as you described.  Her or she knows exactly what techniques were used during the operation which is necessary information to properly evaluate this situation.
