In brief: There could be none.

There may be no possible consequences if your head movement was when the laser had not been "fired".
If you moved during application of the laser you will have a loss of vision where the laser treatment occurred. If the laser treatment was away from your best area of vision you may never notice the additional area of loss. It would be best to ask the doctor that performed the procedure.
