@JimABassPlayer: w.r.t. the neurological part of the symptoms: have you considered application of tDCS on the visual cortex?If he is not seeing more white cells then it isn't physiological. If he's just noticing them as being brighter, that's neurological.

Everybody has more or less the same number of blood cells which lead to this effect, it's just some notice it more than others (which is neurological). Those with visual snow for example tend to notice this effect more, and visual snow is absolutely a neurological condition.
Sounds to me like your neurologist just doesn't know because of his own ignorance, rather than him being 'right' about his implication that it's not an issue.

The reason we get entoptic phenomenon after FOV is because once our vitreous is removed, our eye has less of an ability to absorb light. So that light more easily passes through the eye and bounces off the retina so we can now clearly see all the little white and red blood cells than run across the retina. The vitreous is a thick jelly like substance that absorbs most of the light before it hits the retina. The fluid that our body replaces the vitreous with is no where as near as the consistency as the vitreous. Once it's gone, it gone and the eye has to do its best to absorb light given what structures it's got left in order to do so. Almost every structure in the eye has a role in absorbing light. I have it extra bad because I had lasik, so I have less corneal tissue. For those of you who had it before FOV, you were probably more sensitive to light than most people or possibly had some other type of eye surgery. Either way, FOV can cause BFEP due to the lack of vitreous to absorb light.

OP, did you notice it develop in your right eye post FOV after 1 year but not in your unoperated left eye? It then appeared in your left eye immediately post FOV? That's rather odd if the case.
