    Not asking for medical advice, but I had laser eye treatment for retinopathy in one eye a month ago and my eye does not feel "normal" - I can see normally, but my eye feels different to the other one, as if it is tired and irritated. If anyone else has had this procedure does it just take time for the eye to heal? Yes of course I could get in touch with the doctor but that will take weeks and I thought first I would see if anyone else has gone through this. Many thanks.

    You should be able to get an emergency follow-up appointment if you are concerned. Or at least speak to an ophthalmologist for reassurance. If you are in any doubt whatsoever about your eyes following any procedure like that, then I recommend picking up the phone and calling the clinic/hospital ASAP. Bypass your GP.
