I have had vitreous separtion in both eyes over the last couple of weeks with the onset of seeing a circle of flashing lights and was told this is a normal aging process. Now have a lot of floaters which is also supposed to be normal. Several tears were found which were repaired by a retinal specialist. I am now seeing in the left peripheral where one of the repairs took place a black round spot which comes and goes but now there is shimmering light in the same area, especially when moving from light to dark areas. I had this checked and was also told this will also go away. Have you ever heard of these "effects" from the laser treatment?
