white squiggly lines

About 9 months ago, I had laser surgery in my right eye for a torn retina. All was going well until last month when I started to see many white squiggly lines when I look on lighted surfaces with this eye.
Someone told me it was me seeing white blood cells "moving in my capallatries". It is very annoying to say the least.Anyway, I was at the doctor, and he doesn't seem to think there is a problem. WOW.

Use google and search "entopic phenomena" read about the flying blood cells in your eye. Nothing you can do about that except tune them out.

Thanks so much..but I thought it was strange to have this in just 1 eye...the one with the past surgery...I also see an "image" of my capillaries ...so it looks like...(when I look back and forth into a lighted surface). I work as a computer network admin and my eyes are strained often...but also I am 57 years of age...and changes do occur to some of us lucky ones!
