Eye problem after anesthesia

I just had a prostata (TURP) surgery under full anesthesia. Since then I have flies-like shadows in one eye. Could that be a consequence of anesthesia or surgery?
Thanks hugo.


This discussion is related to anesthesia vision change.

No anesthesia should not cause that problem after prostate surgery. However I would suggest you go see an Eye MD ophthalmologist to see what's going on. Use the search feature and seach "floaters" and "PVDs"

Our eyes steadily loose focus power that occurs rapidly in our 40's and early 50's.   The surgery will not make your eyes weak but often since you are weak they are less able to focus and its a good time to step up your glasses power. See an ophthalmologist.
