Weak Spots in the Retina
Respected Sir
                    A friend of mine has been diagnosed with weak spots in the eye. The power of her lenses has increased over the years. She is 20 years of age and have been told to go through laser surgery if she sees black spots in front of her eyes. Various precautions like avoiding cold &cough, avoiding motion have been told to her.
                                                                                 Please tell what are the options to correct for weak spots in the retina and can she go for a laser surgery right now.

That question is too vague to answer. It could mean thin areas (lattice degeneration), it could mean retinal holes or it could mean something else. She would need to get clarification from the ophthalmologist that saw her or get a second opinion from a retina specialist.
