My 16 year old, extrememly active son, just had the skleral buckle done for his RD. The detachment is most likely due to an injury he sustained to his eye approximately 3 years ago. My question is, what is a realistic expectation for my sons sports future after this surgery. He is the quarterback for his high school football team, plays baseball and bowls. we have raised this questions with our opthamologist and his answer is "it is up to you". We know there is a very real possibility that he will never play football again, but I would love to have some real direction with this decision.
Thanks for your help.
