Went for laser for a vessel bleed, but still see floaters - How long will floaters last?

I recently saw eye floaters. Went for laser for a vessel bleed which has stopped. But still see floaters. How long will floaters last?

Hi @Me sorry to hear about this, hope you're feeling well after the laser! The human mind is very adaptive, and over time will gradually learn to "block out" the floaters. The process can take months, and is generally faster if you try not to pay attention to the floaters (difficult as that may be).

Nonetheless, given that you've seen your specialist and had the laser done, at least you can rest assured the underlying cause has been addressed. That said, if you suddenly notice an increase in the number of floaters, flashes of light, or blurring of vision, that would be an indication to arrange an urgent review with your eye specialist. I hope this helps!
