    I have noticed when I go into a very bright room - for a brief instant
    the light shimmers and then stabilizes. Right now it's merely a
    curiousity thing and not any real problem.

    I recently had laser surgery to correct retinal tears.

    I think the shimmer issue is from the Laser Surgery as I didn't notice
    it before.
    Also I managed to find a few snippets of info on the internet that
    lead me to believe that this will go away with time.

    a) Is this likely to go away with time?
    b) Is it normal?
    c) Will it get worse (i.e. affect day to day) before it gets better?
    d) What causes it, was there some normal damage done to the eye that
    is causing it?
    e) I assume it is not a symptom of retinal tearing like
    "flashes/floater" symptoms?

    I have similar shimmer effects with my IOL implants. Interesting, as I was
    unable to describe the effect clearly until reading your post. I have
    noticed it since cataract surgery 3 months ago.
    Thanks, Good luck!
