Question about post laser coagulation surgery exercise

A friend of mine underwent laser coagulation surgery to fix retinal tears in her eye a year ago. It seems she was told not to lift heavy objects or do any kind of strenuous activity(she is 25 years old), but the doctor was unclear on the duration of this restriction. I understand that she should consult her doctor about this, but for my own curiosity I was wondering if patients who undergo this surgery are generally restricted from certain activities for life? I would think that these restrictions should only be temporary until the scars heal. If there are certain banned activities, what kind would they be?

Thank you!
