Strobe-like flashing in vision upon waking

I have been experiencing a strobe-like effect of flashing light in my full field vision immediately upon waking that last for just a few seconds and then resolves.  Not experiencing any other flashes throughout the day.

I am about 3 months post-op bilateral laser rentinopexy for retinal tear in one eye and asymptomatic retinal hole in the other.  Also 3 months of significantly increased anxiety as a result.

Retinal specialist states everything looks good.

Discuss with your retina surgeon. Often this is the scar around the laser changing from dark Adaptation during sleep to light adaptation upon awakening.
