• Why am I experiencing flashes, floaters after my torn retina laser surgery?


    Question:

    I had laser treatment yesterday for a torn retina and am still experiencing flashes (smaller than before treatment). I also have some thread-like floaters this morning. Is this normal after treatment?


    Answer:

    Many people still have some flashes and floaters after laser for a retinal tear. The safest approach is to have your retina specialist follow you carefully to make sure that the retina is remaining stable.
