Some people can notice a change in their floaters after having laser eye surgery, either a change in pattern or an increase. This seems to happen mainly for those patients with very high amounts of shortsight (myopia), eg -7.00 dioptres or higher. Also patients are paying much more attention to their vision, and the quality of their sight, after having LASIK and become aware of the natural presence of floaters during this time. In this case there is no real change, but just a shift in perception. The awareness of floaters will decrease over the months following having had treatment and are rarely a long term issue.
