I had a horseshoe tear about 7 months ago and I had three

Customer Question

Hi. I had a horseshoe tear about 7 months ago and I had three separate sessions of laser surgery to seal it. I had the 4th one 6 days ago during a 3 month follow up. Since then black specs have increased following this surgery. Can laser surgery lead to an increase in the number of black spots from about 2 to 10-12?
JA: The Opthamologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Opthamologist should know?
Customer: Yes, I had cataract surgery in that eye and a YAG surgery as well. The the laser treatment I am referring to is the recent laser surgery to reinforce the retina.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Opthamologist about your situation and then connect you two.
