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?
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.
