had eye check up today, check retinal... the doctor said no holes and tear. but my left eye retinal is thin, she said she advice I do a laser surgery.

Because she think that why do a surgery when the tear may/ or may not happen. If will happen it may be many years which we do not know right?? I don't know but I just freaking worry about I will go blind, but even retinal detach, I should still have my right eye..... Also the laser surgery will just prevent a certain area.... I don't know what to do!! pls help and give advice... She is the only one who see inside my eye, will she know the 'thinnest' to what degree?? Help pls!!!
You may require prophylactic treatment

I went through your complaints. This can occur at any age - for you it may be age related. Shred-like collagen fiber in the vitreous fluid inside the eye in front of retina, producing its shadow on the retina is the cause.
