In brief: Probably

It would not be unusual to see large floaters, particularly with a retinal tear, and after laser treatment for it.

In brief: Often yes

The laser surgery does not treat the floaters, onl the tear in the retina.
However, if the floaters are worse, patients should get a reexamination, as the retina can tear again in another location. However, additional tears are uncommon or rare. In general the floaters will become less bothersome over time.
