In most cases it does, especially with such short exposure time.
What I am worried about is the spot hasnt changed in my vision for a week. I'm going to the opthalmologist again in 3 weeks. I don't mean to be pessimistic but I feel like it will never go away and my retina will have a burn spot for life.
Only time will tell, just like after burns to the body its hard to tell how much scarring will be permanent.
So is it possible for damage on the retina to heal?
I said in my first answer most of these spots eventually go away over a period of weeks to many months. Some are permanent. I have no other comments and nothing further to add. No one can tell at this point.
maybe he needs some high doase of streoids to avoid permanent scars.
I read somewhere that oral steroids or injections of steroids helps healing of industerial laser injuries but it should be done as soon as posible.
