problem after lasik eye surgery

hi

I had about 5 months ago wavefront eye laser lasik surgery.  My eyes have been dry and sensitive and my eye sight has been very good.  Everything was great until about a month ago when i started to see like fragments of veins and a black dots which moves about my eye when i look up or down and sometimes straight ahead a black blob.  The problem gets better or worse depending what type of day light i am in.  I am really upset as i went to the best clinic.  When i went back to my consultant he said not to worry my eyes were fine but i have very senstive eyes.  I have never experienced this at all before when i was shorted sighted.  It is in my left eye which before was experiencing the most of the dryness.  Please advise as my consultant did not put me at ease and i dont know if it will ever go away.

You may have a posterior vitreous detachment and resultant floaters.  This usually has nothing to do with LASIK.  See an ophthalmologist to make sure you do not have a retinal tear or detachment.  You can use search feature on this sight to read about posterior vitreous detachment or PVD.

Thanks for getting back to me.  The Lasik surgery said it was nothing to do with Lasik too.  I will go see the Opthalmologist see what they say like you suggested.

Thanks again
