Retinal detachment
I had undergone barrage laser for lattice with multiple hole in both the eyes. Following are the treatment schedule: 1 st Sitting - 15/07/2020 both eyes half portion 2nd Sitting - 24/07/2020 both eye remaining portion Then i went for a retinal check up on 20/01/2021 doctor said i am having a new small hole in right eye, then again barrage laser was performed again in right eye. The doctor said remaining things are all okay. My question is whether detachments chances are high after laser treatment, any take care treatment after the laser treatment. The doctor prescribed antioxidants and drops for the next 3 months. Please guide me in this regard.

Detachment chances reduce post barrage laser. However if one particular area is lasered, it doesn't mean that the lattices or holes cannot develop in other areas of retina. So timely checkup with a retina specialist is mandatory.
