Q.

Physical effort after the retinal detachment surgery

Hi. I had a retinal detachment surgery some time ago and my doctor advised me not to do physical effort. But I'm a guy who travel a lot and I need to wear the backpack for hours. Does this count as physical effort? Can this do harm to the retina? What would be a maximum safe weight that I could carry? Can you give me some tips about how should I proceed without putting too much strain on the eyes/retina?

Hi there


It would be best to discuss these questions with your surgeon. I do not have enough info on the specific surgery etc to answer you accurately.

Best wishes
