lasered retina and scuba-diving

Posted By Babette Dorn on December 21, 1998 at 18:38:37:

I had the retina lasered in both of my eyes 3 months ago. What about scuba-diving in the future? Can there be an additional risk to the retina? I am myopic (-8,5/-12) and the retinae where lasered to fix tears and holes in order to prevent retinal detachments.
I am not so much worrying about the great pressure diving, because it is the same all over the body. But what if the concentration of oxygen increases (diving too deep)?
Thank you very much! Babette Dorn
