Hello. I am 30 years old and had laser phototocoagulation for the first time about 5 years ago for a retinal tear. My vision is -7, Once again, I started seeing flashes the other day so I went to my doctor. She found a small "tag" tugging on my retina which could "lead" to another retinal tear. Therefor, once again, I had the laser photocoagulation. The doctor told me that I could go back to running and lifting "light" weights the next day. I would like a second opinion about whether or not this is okay...because I know it can take a few weeks for the procedure to seal. Also, I am still seeing the flashes...not more than before though...and I forgot to ask doc if this would be normal. Thanks so much for your second opinion!
