After a prp laser, I got a major problem

After surgery, Laser Retinal Laser (PRP) has a steady shadow in my eye. what do you think? I went back to the same doctor and did not help and just dropped an eye. I am very worried

I can give you a better answer if you give me some information:  1. what was the Pan Retinal Photocoagulation (PRP) done for? Diabetic proliferative retinopathy is the most common problem.  2. When was it done? 3. Do you have any other eye problems? 4. was this the first eye done? Does the second eye also need PRM  4. Your age.   Thanks

thank you for the response
1. My left eye was a little blurry. I see floating objects near my eyes. After the examination, the doctor said your retina has been pierced. I do not have diabetes.
2. About a month ago.
  3. The right eye is healthy.
  4. Yes
  5. I am 42 years old
It's not likely you had a PRP.  That is done for retinal  neovascularization and large areas of non-perfusion which in tern is almost always diabetic proliferative retinopathy. If your retina was  'pierced" (strange term except when speaking of external trauma) is assume you have a retina tear or detachment. That requires "focal therapy" and yes a dark sport/light spot is often projected 180 degrees opposite the laser treatment and may last for several months.  a PRP is 800-1200 or so laser spots. I suspect you had not nearly that many.  confirm with your ophthalmologist.
