Eye strain and blurred vision after retinal tear lasery surgery

A retinal specialist found two tears in the periphery of my retina a week ago and performed laser surgery to repair the tears. He told me they were not too severe, but should be dealt with immediately. Afterward, I have not seen any new floaters or flashes, but have noticed increased eye strain and blurred vision while reading or looking at fine print in the operated eye?

Are these common side-effects of the operation and more importantly, are they temporary?

Any information would be appreciated.

Dear sdeng09,

It is possible that the eye is still a little inflamed.  If it persists, I would speak with your eyeMD and have your eyes checked.
