Strange effects in my peripheral vision after Argon Laser.

Hi. I have snowflake vitreoretinal degeneration and I done Argon Laser last week as a prevention of future retinal tears and detachments.
It is about 5 days after that procedure and I see something strange in my peripheral vision. It is something like light reflections on water waves. It is not brief flashes. I wonder what is that ... is it an effect after the Argon laser or symptoms of retinal tears or detachment?

Call your retina specialist and let him know.  You may need a repeat exam to make sure everything is OK.
