2 weeks ago, i have been diagnosed with lattice degeneration (left eye). My symptom was that i keep seeing a sort of something that passes to my upper left eye vision. It is like an off white/grayish curtain that is being flipped. Like it has been blown by air, thereby causing the edges to flip. I do not know if that is what a "flashes" is.I also see some sort of reflections or shadows on the same area from time to time. With regards to floaters, i have had them for a year now. They are no more than 2-3 squiggly lines. I am rarely bothered by them. The doctor told me that i need to undergo laser treatment to diminish the risk of developing a retinal detachment. That really scared me. I have read several articles, posts, and commentaries regarding lattice degenaration and most of them said that it is best to leave it alone and just constantly monitor it. Some also said that lasers could also cause the retina to constrict and cause other previously healthy area around the retina to tear. Could someone please enlighten me on this PLEASE. Thank you very much!
